The Queen Mother, Mother of God, Mother of her Divine Son, Christ Jesus, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, most powerful, calls herself The Immaculate Conception, transformed in grace from the first instant of her conception (see Gn 3:15; Lk 1:28), kept from from the macula of original sin. In other words, she is of as much worth (how can we even speak like that?) when just conceived as she is now as the glorious Mother of God.
Joe Biden insults her so that he can push the murder of those as tiny as she was and older, with abortifacients, abortion, the killing of children for pharmaceutical research.
Wilton Gregory instructs Joe Biden that the Catholic Church is pro-life, but then gives Joe Biden Holy Communion. That means that the “teaching” is that life doesn’t matter, Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament doesn’t matter. People don’t matter, including Joe Biden. What rank hypocrisy.
Pope Francis has it that abortion is really, really, really, really, really bad, but then immediately says that Joe Biden, pro-abort demon, is good to go to receive Christ Jesus our Lord in Holy Communion. That means that the “teaching” is that life doesn’t matter, Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament doesn’t matter. People don’t matter, including Joe Biden. What rank hypocrisy.
When someone insults the Immaculate Conception, saying that she is NOT the Immaculate Conception, Christ Jesus takes notice. He was conceived in her womb by the Holy Spirit, and was there for nine months.
Joe Biden should take notice of Jesus being indignant right now. You don’t want His wrath after you die. That goes for Wilton Gregory as well. That goes for Pope Francis as well.
Language in that last one. This was number one on the charts for while. Know your culture.
Comments in the counting room after Mass yesterday included high praise for the reporter in the last video, brilliantly getting the interview on-air by supplying the words “Let’s go Brandon” even while… you know…
Sorry, but I have to laugh. And now, on account of that laughter, I’ll probably have a warrant put out on me by the Biden Admin with puppets at the DOJ as FBI as CJIS in Bridgeport WV. ;-) … … … bwahahahahahahahaha! Oops!
Oh. I should comment on the intro of Johnny Cash to Ragged ol’ Flag lest I be red-flagged. He speaks of shooting anyone who would burn his flag. What he’s talking about, truth be told, is what is narrated in about the Star Spangled Banner in that other video above. That’s about defense of self and others from unjust and already being delivered deadly aggression. It’s sad that an explanation has to be given in our tender snowflake days. Anyway… Let’s go Brandon!
All these nurses et alii, because they are fired, will have no pay, no insurance. The hospital is Presbyterian. But don’t blame the Presbies. Here in Andrews, NC, the Presbies are like those who just now have been fired; they’ve remained open since the beginning, just like the little Catholic church in Andrews, NC.
The reason for the firings doesn’t have anything to do with any fear of any Faucian Chinese Communist Party virus, but rather the OSHA administered $14,000 per incident fine coming down upon those companies with more than 100 employees, or coming down upon those self-employed contractors with companies with more than 100 employees, that is, including all un-vaxed (arch)diocesan priests working for any (arch)diocese in these USA, that is, all ministers and preachermen right across the country.
But the new “reconciliation” bill for which Joe Manchin refuses to vote at the moment, states, on page 168, that the fine is not going to be $14,000, but rather a fine of $700,000 per un-vaxed person. Get that? In fact, the explicitly stated intention is to bankrupt all institutions who let un-vaxed workers work.
So, I mean, like, what weak (arch)bishop is going to retain even one priest who is un-vaxed? Not one, is the answer. Instead, those weak (arch)bishops are tougher than the Federal government dares to be, giving the green light to the government to be even more draconian. The Feds provide options of religious exemptions and weekly testing. Do the weak (arch)bishops do that? No. In fact, they are angry at the Federal government for embarrassing them about options the weak (arch)bishops refuse to tolerate.
Oh, a GREAT summary by Tucker about all this:
“But Father George! Father George! You and that Tucker guy are so dramatic! Get real! You know very well, Father George, that there is almost no (arch)bishop or (arch)diocesan priest in this world who is un-vaxed, and so… what are you talking about?! There will be no fines, because all those guys are vaxed, like twice, and, like, with three or four booster shots, daily booster shots, intravenous boosters that they walk around with on rolling intravenous poles you can get on Amazon for $35 bucks, really nice, you know, to set, like, a good example! You know that, Father George! You’re being misleading! You’re scaring people into thinking that churches will be shut down! You know that’s not true, Father George! You’re an ol’ meanie! You should be stopped, Father George!”
Meanwhile, wards and hospitals are shutting down. Meanwhile, priests are being forbidden to provide the sacraments in (arch)diocese after (arch)diocese. It’s not Jesus and His Little Flock but rather money that is “PRECIOUS” –
I don’t want to turn into that. But I daily see (arch)bishops and their priests turn into.. that… They lust for that, envy that, wanna be Gollum at his worst, which they think is the best for anyone.
It’s like a priest who told me flat out that he would abandon the flock to serve the Lord another day, because that’s the smart thing to do. He’ll be able to advance over the corpses of his brothers. But anyone who plays the mercenary for the sake of being a shepherd will always be the mercenary and never a shepherd. That priest is not an outlier. They are most common today.
Here’s a video, an analogy, on the brutality of wolves who don’t bother to hide themselves with sheep’s clothing, but just outright attack the Lord’s Little Flock in front of God and the whole world, dramatically playing up fearsomeness for the lights and camera, which they pay for, because they are proud of what they do in attacking the Lord’s Little Flock. How brave! Wolves attacking sheep! Such leaders! Such heroes! “We’re happy there are pro-life people, but we’ll move forward with vaccines anyways!”
Meanwhile, please God, this priest, yours truly, will not get vaxed, and will protect the least of the brethren in the womb, the least of the Lord’s Little Flock. Dear Jesus, please make it so. Please make it that there will be plenty of (arch)diocesan priests and (arch)bishops and Cardinals and upwards with whom I will be able to join, those who protect, who are not mercenaries, but who are true shepherds. Meanwhile, I rejoice in this scene and the words of the Magnificat which have special incisiveness in our days:
“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me—holy is his name. His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.”
///Update:I got some legal advice about all this and took down this post not long after I put it up, as I realized it needed some rewriting. I’m not an attorney, so I spoke with someone with lots of legalese background. I had just a minute to do that before chasing off for many hours of pastoral work. Finally, here’s the quite entirely rewritten post: ///
OSHA, the henchman of Joe Biden, is likely to trample on exemptions claimed as medical, religious and from Natural Law (as delineated in the Constitution with caselaw precedents). Biden and OSHA would rather you die from medical contraindications and that you spiritually die by compromising with moral contraindications. Remember, big pharma murders the little ones in order to extract their living organs for research and/or development and/or testing of their “vaccines”.
Just your basic citizen, Ben Shapiro, is ready to fight this in court. Good on you, Ben.
I’m waiting for news from any (arch)diocese doing the same for… who?
Are teachers in Catholic parochial schools regular employees of whatever (arch)diocese? I’m guessing that they are independent contractors without any serious labor union. In most places right around the world they have one year contracts. Does that change for some over time?
Are any remunerated workers in any parish (groundskeepers, sacristans, secretaries, et al.) considered salaried workers or independent contractors?
Are some of those working in chanceries salaried or are they all independent contractors?
For tax purposes, priests are considered independent contractors, that is, self-employed.
So, there’s likely a wide variety of circumstances, but any (arch)diocese might want to put out some guidance or a statement of their intentions, such as a bid for a stay of execution of OSHA’s anti-Constitution overreach even while they file litigation. But I haven’t seen much of that going on, have you?
“But Father George! You don’t understand! We have religious exemptions!”
No. You don’t. Because it hasn’t come to that, not because a declaration has been made to date as far as I know about absolutely disallowing exemptions of any kind, but because of the process.
The mandate is already made, and OSHA is the henchman, now promising to review any kind of exemption for whatever reason, eager to claim that any such exemptions are illegitimate for any salaried personnel and all independent contractors.
Every (arch)diocese is subject to OSHA oversight. OSHA will insist that any religious exemption for all salaried personnel and all independent contractors is fraudulent on the basis that pretty much any given (arch)bishop has promoted getting vaccines and has opened up their church campuses to be used as injection clinics. The hypocrisy would be total, and so it’s easy to call out.
Meanwhile, there’s a $14,000 fine per incident. That might fall on any (arch)diocese for regular salaried individuals. Would an (arch)diocese attempt to dock the pay of those salaried workers, however illegally, or just outright terminate any non-vaxers?
What about independent contractors who all have to post OSHA injury/death proclamations, whose names they have because of the regular reporting to OSHA wrought by any (arch)diocese? OSHA merely has to press a button to send out notifications to millions of independent contractors, such as priests, demanding proof of vaccine or weekly proof of testing, along with the threat of a $14,000 fine, to be paid not by any (arch)diocese (which will likely not be overly concerned about the issue), but to be paid by any independent contractor. That’s between him and OSHA. The (arch)diocese has nothing to do with it.
As OSHA sends out notifications to employers of salaried employees or to contracted workers, that’s when there will be a chance to claim any religious exemptions.
A great bit of advice I received as a priest, an “independent contractor” (self-employed) was to drag the matter out with exquisitely polite and courteous language, not in the form of a “karen” (who wishes to impose on others), but in the form of the sincerely ignorant citizen just trying to understand the situation: “I don’t understand this mandate. Is it legally binding in this constitutional republic having the rule of law? This seems to be illegal. Please explain.”
But as all of that continues over months, the time will nevertheless come quickly when you either pay, or have one’s bank accounts or any assets seized. Once any process like that starts, it’s hard to stop. “Independent contractors” like priests are convenient examples to smack down as they often have hundreds and thousands in any parish and every last person will be looking to their leadership or lack thereof.
It would be great if any (arch)diocese would proclaim that they are preparing litigation, ready to proceed up the chain to the Supreme Court, defending their regular salaried workers and also speaking out on behalf of any “independent contractors” without whom any (arch)diocese shuts down entirely. Sad to say, I think most priests and (arch)bishops have already been vaxed, have even coerced their priests and parishes to get vaxed, and are chomping at the bit to get their third booster shots.
For a priest to removed from the harassment hit-list, he will have to resign his being an independent contractor. Many have said that a priest must not quit, but must rather be actively taken out by any (arch)bishop. But in this case, that won’t happen. Any penalty will not hit any (arch)diocese, but merely the contracting priest. Period. So, who cares. In order to avoid draconian penalties the priest will have to stop any contract and move out of any supplied residence, stop taking any remuneration, any insurance, all that which would bind him as a “self-employed” “independent contractor.” OSHA insistence will no longer apply to him.
Hopefully, any (arch)bishop will not remove any strictly religious faculties such as for absolving sin.
Meanwhile, I know a(n) (arch)bishop who praised pro-lifers for not wanting to get the “vaccine,” and then immediately said that nevertheless he will be pushing the “vaccine.” That’s as bad as Wilton Gregory saying that Joe Biden gets it wrong regarding abortion, but then proceeds nevertheless to give him Holy Communion.
But Father George! Father George! You never had to get any “vaccine” under the “vaccine mandate.” You have the option of getting a weekly Covid test!”
Well, here’s the deal. I have the strongest antibodies against Covid as anyone in the world. My doctor did all three antibody tests and I was super strong on all three. But no one is interested in this. It’s not about Covid. It’s about manipulation of consciences, social engineering: your body is owned by the State. That goes beyond the atheistic communism of the Stalinist Soviet Union. America disappears. The Constitution disappears. That’s what this is about.
As for the weekly test. I was tested early on with those long swabs that go right to the back of your nasal cavities:
Those can get infected quite easily. I know people whose infections have eaten through into their bone structure of their skulls. Yep. That’s the last thing I need. Any agitation of, say, areas 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 would cause an edema reaction that would shut off my ability to breath within minutes. In the other areas, say 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, it would only take some extra minutes for this to happen. This severe reaction is from a extremely rare hereditary condition. People think I’m so dramatic, but my mom died from this. Please don’t make fun of my mom in her last moments of agonizing suffocation. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. About 1/3 die from this. You can die this way even right in front of doctors in an emergency room because they don’t know what’s happening because the condition is so incredibly rare. My own doctor some decades ago told me that this had just happened to a young man in the emergency room of the hospital down the street. I don’t want to do this smacking of the back of the nasal cavities with those long swabs again.
Upshot (so to speak): I hope litigation quickly ends the murderous hunting down of “criminals” like me who refuse to get vaxed on both medical and religious and natural law and constitutional grounds. But that will take the Supreme Court, which at this point could go either way.
Is anyone aware of any (arch)diocese which is offering any advice about any of this to priests or other of their workers?
Would it be prudential to get my things ready to move? I mean, I realize I’m an outlier, in that I’m guessing that the vast majority of priests and bishops are vaxed and despise those priests who hold up any pro-life resistance, so that it might be the case of “good riddance” for the mere few who don’t get vaxed, you know, those who are not “men of consensus” in a sign-of-contradiction vocation are to be thrown out as trash.
Thanks, mom (RIP 1994), for making me go see this just released film just some months after I was ordained a priest. I was wondering why she was so insistent, that is, until I watched this scene unfold on the silver screen. That’s it! Honesty and integrity. That’s what she wanted to see in any priest. It’s what Jesus wants to see with any of His priests. That’s some good encouragement right there. Great. So, let’s see an analogy:
Jesus: “I’m here to tell you this priest’s soul is intact. It’s non-negotiable. You know how I know? Someone here – and you know who that is – offered to buy it. Only this, My good priest here, wasn’t selling.”
Liberal bishop: “Jesus, you are out of order!”
Jesus: “Outta order? I’ll show you outta order! You don’t know what outta order is, you liberal bishop! I’d show you but you’re too old; you’re too tired; you’re too blind. I should take a FLAME-THROWER to this place! Outta order? Who do you think you’re talkin’ to? I’ve been around, you know. I have seen men like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there isn’t nothin’ like the sight of an amputated spirit; there is no prosthetic for that.”
Here’s the deal: Good priests want to protect the littlest of the brethren of Jesus’ Little Flock, at whatever cost to themselves. The little ones, in the womb, Jesus’ image, with whom Jesus identifies (what you have done to the least of these you have done to me) are getting their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. How can good priests do less? We must defend life against, say, the vaccine mandate, NOT getting the vaccine and instructing others about NOT getting the vaccine. Why’s that? Because big pharma has abandoned guinea pigs, gerbils, rats, mice, rhesus monkeys, etc., for research and/or development and/or testing of vaccines, and are now murdering fully developed healthy human beings to do this research and/or development and/or testing of vaccines. No one has the right to take such a vaccine just to pretend they’re going to save their own lives in this world for a few minutes. Murder for hire for self-benefit. Not good. This is said in religious terms, but it applies to everyone. It’s Natural Law: Don’t murder the innocent! Directly procured abortion is murder of the innocent, a mortal sin, that, which – all things being equal – will send those participating in such a heinous murder straight to hell, regardless of whether they think there is a hell or not.
Liberal bishop, having failed with Jesus, attacks the priest: “We might be fined $14,000 just for you if you don’t comply! We can’t have ‘that kind of thing going on’ you stupid priest!”
So, thirty pieces of silver is now equal to $14,000, about four times as much as in biblical times. What a temptation to take to one’s grave! Oooo! $14,000 in hell. I wonder what that will buy you in hell. Judas, eagerly wanting to find out, immediately hung himself in the Field of Blood, Gehenna, Hell, to proudly present his money to Satan. How do you think that worked out?
“The Church is incapable of forgiving any sin without Christ, and Christ is unwilling to forgive any sin without the Church. The Church cannot forgive the sin of one who has not repented, who has not been touched by Christ; Christ will not forgive the sin of one who despises the Church. What God has joined together, man must not separate. This is a great mystery, but I understand it as referring to Christ and the Church.” — Saint Isaac of Stella
“Because of forms of conditioning and mitigating factors, it is possible that in an objective situation of sin – which may not be subjectively culpable, or fully such – a person can be living in God’s grace, can love and can also grow in the life of grace and charity, while receiving the Church’s help to this end.(351) /// (351) In certain cases, this can include the help of the sacraments. Hence, “I want to remind priests that the confessional must not be a torture chamber, but rather an encounter with the Lord’s mercy” (Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium [24 November 2013], 44: AAS 105 , 1038). I would also point out that the Eucharist “is not a prize for the perfect, but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak” (ibid., 47: 1039). — Francis
Thus, what’s his name, Wilton Gregory or something, Archbishop of Washington DC, corrected Joey Biden to say that life does indeed begin at conception. However, at the same time, old Wilt will still be giving Holy Communion to Joe. It’s called the accompaniment by Pope Francis. By any other name it’s called neither recognizing anyone’s moral capacity nor the power of Jesus’ sanctifying grace, you know, from Jesus, who said, “Go, and do not sin again.”
By the way, that citation of Saint Isaac of Stella is fortuitously taken from the Novus Ordo Liturgy of the Hours for this very day. ;-)
Even while the Department of State is doing all they can to forbid flights evacuating U.S. citizens and translators from Afghanistan they claim credit for the rescue of four Americans.
There comes a time in everyone’s life when you have to choose either to continuing living your life as a lie, hating God and neighbor and self, or to make radical changes in one’s life to live with honesty and integrity, with purity of heart and agility of soul.
It’s a choice between life and death, eternal life and eternal death.
People are scared to look at that choice. Many entrench, blinding themselves all the more, rationalizing about choices they “have to make because ____(fill in the blank)____. And before they know it, they become murderers.
There is the occasional report of resignations from those who have not only seen the light, but then stayed in the light.
Book 11 of the Confessions of Saint Augustine describes the hell of time for unbelievers, all surreal, all dissociative, the future now presently past, no possibility of being in solidarity with others, simply wasting time marking time.
Biden checked his watch each time a coffin was carried out of the plane, thirteen times…
Did you ever notice that the Dali’s time-pieces are not all in sync? One has been thrown off, slowed down by six minutes by the Lord of the Flies, the death monger, Satan, making all seem absurd, surreal…
Look at the time piece draped over the coffin[?]; just under the “12” you’ll see a fly and its shadow.
But Saint Augustine provides the solution, Christ Jesus, for whom time is but a creation that He holds in His hands, from beginning to end. Jesus said that when He would be lifted up on the cross, stretching out His hands on the cross, He would draw all to Himself right across time into that one hour of mercy, where we could then be in solidarity with Him being in solidarity with us, in which time we would not be wasting time marking time. With Jesus we are brought into all time and out of time into eternity with Him. After all:
Copiosa apud eum redemptio – Redemption is abundant with Him
This is the Redemptorist church near Saint Mary Major Basilica in Rome, which I would pass by, and enter into, frequently. Mercy is based on justice. It is justice which makes mercy credible. But we have to choose with God’s grace to believe. We have to choose to see the justice of the wounds bringing mercy. We have to choose to see the coffins of those who laid down their lives for others, giving their lives that others may live.
Traitor Joe purposely left untold numbers of American citizens and Afghani interpreters behind to be methodically executed as had already been happening. We knew all this would happen – as scripted – long ago. It sends a message.
But now we’ve been pretending to solve all our problems with the murder of American Citizens in the womb for so long that it’s second nature to us just to go ahead and kill everyone: abortifacients, abortion, infanticide, and the purposed removal of live, healthy, fully developed, viable babies while extracting their organs for research and/or development and/or testing of “vaccines.” Murder for self-benefit.
I’m sure to be reprimanded by someone somewhere for “playing partisan politics” with this blog post. So, let’s tell it as it really is, shall we? I mean, why blame Traitor Joe? He’s just the easy, low hanging fruit. There are others who are much more responsible than he is for any death and destruction.
Our religious leaders – who should be leading the way with all that is respectful of God and neighbor and self – have instead dulled the consciences of all right through these decades, hurting the Lord’s Little Flock:
“You can choose according to your mature Christian conscience to go ahead and murder those made in the image and likeness of God, those least of the brethren with whom Jesus Himself identifies: ‘What you have done to the least of these you have done to Me’. So, go ahead, be mature! Kill ’em all!” (said with toothy smiles).
Once you murder the least of the brethren for your own benefit, it’s all becomes that blatant. And they don’t even realize that anymore. These “leaders” blather on about how people will work their way to heaven, saving themselves by supposedly exercising their consciences by going ahead and choosing to get the “vaccine” that involves the murder of the little ones. But murder is not what a conscience decides is right to choose. No. This sophistry is straight out of hell. It was used for contraception and abortifacients and abortion with a vengeance against life especially starting in July of 1968 in the rebellion against Pope Paul VI’s encyclical letter on human life, Humanae vitae, a vengeance that has only become more violent as the decades have clicked by. Now even the “orthodox” and “good” bishops are presiding over putting the image of Jesus to death so that they might look clever and nice and thus be able to be promoted. Ooo! Promotion! The same brow beating that went on then goes on now. Priests are removed for respecting Jesus in the least of the brethren.
But an erroneous conscience does not save. Only Jesus saves. Pope Pius XII says in his encyclical Mystici Corporis that Christ Jesus, from the first moment of His conception, embraced the entirety of the members of the Mystical Body of Christ, those He came to redeem and save. But Jesus in the womb is the last One these “leaders” will speak about when they provide rationalizations, sophistries, to go ahead and kill those in the womb who are made in the image and likeness of Jesus Himself. Never. Not once. Why is that. Guilty consciences? They should go to Sacramental Confession. And then confess publicly, guiding those they misled back to Jesus, back to respect for life.
I remember one Bishop in this sorry world – and I know so very many in so very many countries – who ever so condescendingly said that he respects those who for pro-life reasons don’t want to get the “vaccine”, but that in his (arch)diocese they will just keep pushing that everyone get the vaccine, praising those churches which became injection centers, bragging about priests and laity getting vaccines, making life miserable for those who don’t get the vaccine. Condescension praising stupid pro-lifers but marching on to all that is the culture and cult of death cries out to heaven for God Himself to intervene to stop these “leader”-monsters.
Don’t think that our religious “leaders” won’t be participating in photo-opps about how well they murdered people.
Don’t think that our religious “leaders” are not the ones pulling the trigger in that twitter video above.
Natural antibodies are six to seven times stronger than artificial “immunity” of “vaccines”. Also, since the beginning, everyone everywhere has been saying that it’s unknown but a likely possibility that the artificial “vaccines” will overreact with some other CCP virus, causing a fever that turns your brain into soup. Then you’re dead.
Yours truly got Covid mild symptoms of a “case” of Covid some seven weeks ago, then pneumonia, because I wouldn’t and will not get Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson – BioNtech et alia “vaccines” because they are researched and/or developed and/or tested on the living organs ripped from fully developed absolutely healthy babies purpose-removed from women in sterile laboratory conditions or pharmaceutical mega-corporations.
My doctor did three antibody tests on me and I came back – almost impossibly he said – super-strong on all three, even on the one that almost never tests positive since the antibodies have to be freakishly strong. I’m good to go, seven times more so than any dangerous jab could have given me. And — Wait! What? — your question to me is whether or not I got injected and not whether or not I have ultra-strong vaccines, six to seven times stronger than your damnable “vaccines”?
Joe Biden, monster, months ago signed an executive order permitting all such activity of murdering children. And anyway, what do you think Planned Parenthood has been doing all this time in selling baby parts as big-business?
Sure, I’ll get the fake artificial “vaccine”, you know, over my dead body. And no damned government official and certainly no damned bishop on his way very quickly straight to hell is going to make me get any “vaccine” for which babies are being killed not only in recent times but right now.
Yours truly is being divisive and ineffective again. I’m being condemned for saying that the likes of Joe Biden must be denied Holy Communion unless he repents publicly for objective grave sins. He not only pushes homosexuality and homosexual marriage, but has himself “witnessed” such fake marriages himself. He is, objectively, the monster pushing for abortion as, it seems, no other politician has done in history, even more than Obama and Hilary Clinton. Etc. He signed an executive order allowing baby parts to be extracted and sold for research or… what? Cosmetics? Food?
Let me say it again, if Joe Biden comes up to receive Holy Communion while picking his teeth with the ribs of babies in my parish I will deny him Holy Communion, you know, the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus who was Himself in the womb of His Immaculate Virgin Mother as a little Baby for nine months. Is that being political? I’m not going to deny Jesus effectively by giving some pro-abortion guy Holy Communion.
And if the bishops of these USA complain that I deny Joe Biden Holy Communion, and do their worst to me, I will hold my head high, rejoice and be glad for having had the opportunity to suffer for the Lord Jesus. It’s better to suffer now and go to heaven than to be enslaved to cowering political correctness and then just go to hell. Eternity is forever.
A word to the wise. It happens that the wise may become wiser, and the unwise may entrench. Sound cruel? Here’s the Sacred Scriptures on that point:
“Let the wicked still act wickedly, and the filthy still be filthy. The righteous must still do right, and the holy still be holy. Behold, I am coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the unchaste, the murderers, the idol-worshipers, and all who love and practice deceit.” (Apocalypse 22:11-15)
Again, I don’t just Joe Biden’s soul, just what he presents on the outside. What is presented on the outside by anyone must be judged. That’s the only way we get through life.
Those wielding misinformation materials and very possibly syringes ready to be drawn look so very professional, you know, just like the druggies in my neighborhood. Look at the scrupulous mask wearing, you know, because this is actually about Covid…. not.
For myself, I’m of the mind of Reagan on this:
Of course, the very next step is forced vaccinations. And I bet the guy they send out will be this guy:
Um…. Um…. I’m likely not going to comply! :-)
I mean, all I would have say with all courtesy and politeness and soft-spoken-ness is “Um… No…” and the dippy compliance officer would run away, execrating his fear, hopefully out on the street.
Here’s LifeSiteNews’ Resource Page on the Covid-19 Vaccines:
UPDATE: Well, well… Now we have the “Green-Shirts” for the door to door intimidation:
The one girl still doesn’t have an issued mask, even for the photo-op. How very haphazard is this entire administration. The guy on the left doesn’t even have a vest, just a green Izod shirt. His I.D. is surely not law-enforcement.
Not intimidating, at least not to me. I won’t be getting any vaccination.
So, no wonder Joe Biden is forbidding any emphasis on Mount Rushmore on 4 July 2021. I get it. No fireworks to celebrate the Constitution that celebrates God-given unalienable rights. Dems what all rights to be repealed, trampled upon, given to whom they like as an act of politically expedient condescension. No. I celebrate the free exercise of religion, the freedom to assemble, to speak freely even when that’s unpopular, the right to defend the innocent from the threat of deadly, already being delivered aggression, etc. Let’s see… that fireworks celebration… Ah, yes…
From FoxNews: “The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Roman Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights.”
“Minimize divisions”? Let’s take a look at that…
Did the Dems vote God out of their party platform, dividing God from everything that happens in the world? Yes.
Do the Dems push maniacally to rip kids apart in the womb and after birth, dividing, shredding the image of God in the least of the brethren? Yes.
Do the Dems hate the elderly, attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor in their effort to assist the elderly, dividing the elderly from the care they need? Yes.
Do the Dems attack the image of God proclaimed in Genesis as male and female with family, thus dividing the image of God? Yes.
Diabolical? Yes. That’s from the Greek, meaning to throw apart, to divide. Division aimed at God and God’s image is diabolical. Do we “minimize divisions” when we not only ignore such diabolical interventions but bless them, consecrate them, proclaim them as holy, to be imitated, by giving Holy Communion to those who divisory in this way? Not at all. The divide is made all the greater between the saints and the malicious, between those who follow Jesus and those who attack Jesus both personally and in the least of the brethren.
In all of this it is very difficult to find anyone who speaks of Jesus. The “good” commentators will speak of “it”, you know, the thing.
They will be respectful, have right doctrine, but, really, it’s very difficult to find someone who will speak the Holy Name of Jesus, that in receiving Holy Communion, the Eucharist – you know, the thing – they are in fact face to Face Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception (she who had Jesus within her womb for nine months and did not rip Jesus to shreds with abortion).
Why can’t we just say Jesus? Why can’t we say that ripping kids up in the womb, kids who are the image of Jesus, and then receiving Jesus Himself at Holy Mass into one’s bosom isn’t consonant, and isn’t to be done, so that such horrific monsters like Joey Biden are to be flat out denied the reception of Jesus for the good of their own souls?
It’s pastorally sensitive to deny Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden. Those who maliciously administer Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden risk going straight to hell, even if they are merely any bishop, merely any priest, merely any Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
It’s pastorally sensitive to be divisive, dividing the likes of Joey Biden from reception of Jesus.
Jesus said He has brought a sword of division. We had better use that sword of division lest we be divided from eternal salvation.
My first duty as a priest is to be divisive since my first duty as a priest is to bring Jesus, the Great Divider, to His Little Flock, to feed the lambs, to tend the sheep, to feed the sheep, discerning with such divisory spirit just who is a lamb and who is sheep and not a wolf in sheep’s clothing. My first duty is not to feed the likes of this:
Letting the likes of Joey Biden receive Jesus in Holy Communion is to confirm him in being a wolf and risks sending him straight to hell. Those who maliciously allow that, are they not also risking going straight to hell? Are they not wolves in sheep’s clothing as well?
Where’s a real guard-donkey when you need one?
In following up on my priestly vocation from Jesus I agreed to be divisory with Jesus. I volunteered to be a guard-donkey of Jesus’ Little Flock.
Meanwhile, what the hell is that Jesuit guy at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith doing? He is being terribly divisory, causing division. He casting all apart: diabolical. How ironic.
Now, having said that, am I liable to being smacked down by the very Church I seek to defend, as many priests are being smacked down at this moment for that reason? No, and neither are they. But it is happening to many. Let’s take a look at the law of the Church, the Code of Canon Law to see if I’m amiss on that:
Canon 1369 A person who in a public show or speech, in published writing, or in other uses of the instruments of social communication utters blasphemy, gravely injures good morals, expresses insults, or excites hatred or contempt against religion or the Church is to be punished with a just penalty.
Correcting even an ecclesiastical personage even of great rank, even the Holy Father, is none of that. Instead, it’s speaking with the pontifically mandated parrhesia (speaking the truth boldly, with charity, for the salvation of souls). Sure, the truth hurts for those who don’t want the truth. Sure, there might be retaliation from those who have great authority in lording it over the sheep, but that doesn’t mean they are either correct or are doing that charitably.
Canon 1373 A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.
Yes, well, we have to ask if individuals in the Apostolic See or an Ordinary are acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, and so are acting as individuals and not legitimately with some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry. Charitable correction sometimes has to be harsh, as we know with John the Baptist and Jesus. And because some are in need of harsh correction there may appear to be animosity or hatred from the corrector, even when there is none. It is a supreme act of selfless charity to correct someone who is breakneck running straight into hell. Provoking people to disobey administrative acts that provoke sin is not disobedience. It is supreme obedience to keep people from sin.
This modus operandi which I strive to follow in sacerdotal ministry is to fly in the face of sin, and to disregard any order to sin. The objective is the salvation of souls. I have been ordered in decades past in far away places to give Jesus in Holy Communion to manifest pro-abort politicians and to manifest grave sinners who were members of those respective parishes. It ain’t gonna happen. I suffered the consequences, which were draconian, that is, diabolical, that is, divisory. I’m just trying to do what is right in natural law, the 10 Commandments, in Canon Law, particularly before my Judge, Christ Jesus, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.
It just struck me that there will surely be an objection that to be fair in all things “political”, I would also have to refuse Jesus in Holy Communion to, say, someone like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, you know, to make a point that the Church is not siding with any political party (as if any of that makes any sense). No, no. It would be worse: surely the reprimand would be something along the lines of administering Holy Communion to the likes of freakish pro-abortion Joey Biden but then refusing the likes of a Mother Teresa, you know, because Mother Teresa is like, you know, “rigid.”
Is is the great Father James Altman who got me thinking on all this divisoriness. Many incidents in my priestly life come to mind where the actual world divisory was used. I’ve had people say that I’m precisely 180 degrees turned away from being a “man of consensus.” I can only blame that on the Lord Jesus, thanks be God our Father.
We are not to unified among ourselves mired together in the lowest common denominator, then calling that such sharing in filth some kind of unity with God. No.
We are to be united to God and because of that, with Jesus, we are to wield the sword of division, the eternal Word of God, in such manner that we are all crucified to ourselves so as live through, with and in Christ Jesus.
That’s the end of division and the establishment of true unity in the Most Holy Trinity.
“obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”
Cardinal Burke commented on ongoing past controversy about all this, recounting that:
“The discussion among the Bishops uncovered a fair amount of serious confusion regarding the discipline of can. 915. First of all, the denial of Holy Communion was repeatedly characterized as the imposition of a canonical penalty, when, in reality, it plainly articulates the responsibility of the minister of Holy Communion, ordinary or extraordinary, to deny Holy Communion to those who obstinately persevere in manifest grave sin.
Scenario: Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is to flat out deny admission of Holy Communion right in front of God and the whole church even though he/she or his/her pastor has not had any ongoing dialogue with said Joey Biden.
The point is that Joey Biden’s sin is a sin, it is grave, is it manifest (public and unmistakable) and from which he has not publicly repented, and therefore he is to be flat out denied, turned away, even forthwith escorted from the church by security if he disrupts the religious service, a crime, I think, pretty much everywhere in these USA.
However, the Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has the pretense of rejecting the universal law of the Church, which follows upon Divine Revelation, as we read in Saint Paul that those receiving the Eucharist without discerning the Body and Blood of Christ are eating and drinking their own condemnation. I should think that the Cardinal Prefect has better think again before he seemingly calls the Holy Spirit a damned fool.
The Cardinal Prefect “requires that dialogue occurs in two stages: first among the bishops themselves, and then between bishops and Catholic pro-choice politicians within their jurisdictions.” Meanwhile, I’m thinking about the priest or deacon or other who must deny Joey Biden on the spot, and not wait during Communion time for such two-stage dialogues to occur. Sigh.
The Cardinal Prefect wants the bishops to be unanimous. When’s the last time any bishops in the history of the church were unanimous about anything? The answer is never.
The Cardinal Prefect wants this to apply not only to politicians, but to everyone. Great idea! But then he adds all moral issues into the mix using the heretical “seamless garment” idiocy that holds abortion and moving violations as equivalent. In other words, no one receives Holy Communion ever, and we cannot tolerate that, so everyone all the time no matter what can receive Holy Communion.,
Since the Cardinal Prefect insists on unanimity, and since Cardinal Wilton Gregory has mandated that the unrepented Biden is to be given Holy Communion at churches in the archdiocese of Washington D.C., the “dialogue” is over, and everyone everywhere no matter what is to be given Holy Communion, you, Pachamama Satanists…. everyone!
This is one priest who will simply follow Saint Paul and Canon 915. I would rather die than give unrepented Joey Biden Holy Communion. I won’t.
But don’t think I’m angry and cold hearted and unmerciful. I’m totally lighthearted in being able to deny Joey Biden Holy Communion. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing as a priest. I’m helping Joey Biden to repent and get to heaven. I’m taking his soul seriously. So is that priest in South Carolina who denied Joey Biden Communion. There are many. And the number is growing.
The Cardinal Prefect and his sycophant bishops literally don’t give a damn about Joey Biden’s soul, do they? They speak only of division in politics. The priests who deny Joey Biden Holy Communion want Joey Biden in heaven, you know, all things being right with his conversion and such.
And, yes. Denial will have political implications if Joey Biden is turned away. Rightly so. And it will have implications for the better among Catholics as believers as well.
Jesus said that He did not come to bring peace, but the sword of the Word, the Father’s Living Truth, in which we rejoice. Amen.
And, mind you, this is within living memory of the Holocaust. I don’t even know where to begin with how maliciously ignorant this scripted text of West Wing is. Everything is taken out of context that full on hatred of all religion must be the pretext.
Today, fake Catholics like Wuhan Joe are bashing believing Catholics, taking texts in the New Testament out of context to provide self-serving pretext for an anti-Catholic Kristallnacht.
As Bill Donohue says, “The Equality Act has two major goals: it would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity to the definition of sex; it would also undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by allowing gay rights to trump religious rights.” Get that?
Bible burning to ensue, both Testaments. Burning of churches will happen at the same time, sometimes with congregants inside, being burned to death. This happens. A priest friend of mine recounted the day the flames were to come to his parish church. Miracles followed, but not for everyone in that hell.
Hellish attitudes are all around us, just waiting to be unleashed. No one cares, because they think it can’t happen.
Just the other day the druggies in my neighborhood were readying themselves to do up a home invasion on me, but my fearless neighbor, risking life and limb, chased them away. This happens quite a bit. Andrews, NC is the drug capital for WNC, for East TN, for North Georgia. The crime has transformed and increased to crazy levels. But we don’t have stats because, you know, why should they be sent in to state level anyway? We’re a nice town! But the State is on to us now, so I imagine something might be sent in, maybe for parking tickets or the like. So, speaking of the Second Amendment…
We hear much about HR127 which in effect is tantamount to removing the Second Amendment from the Constitution of these USA. I doubt that will proceed very far. But more recently, an interview with Wuhan Joe was published (now post-inauguration), which presents something even more far reaching in its simplicity. Wuhan Joe wants to confiscate all guns, though providing his personal permission[!] for having a sidearm if there are biometrics involved, so that, for instance, a self-defense tool will not operate unless any involved fingerprints are those of the registered owner of the self-defense tool. This, of course, requires a new purchase on the part of citizens in good standing. Surely there’s no kickbacks to be involved there… Um… Also, technology for framing individuals for crimes by way of fingerprint transfers has been around for decades.
Fingerprints… I’ve submitted to that process by way of black inkings and by way of all sort and manner of glass-plate scanners right through the years right around the world and right across these USA. The fingerprinting events of whatever method have always been frustrating, with whatever law enforcement techs becoming visibly annoyed and even somewhat aggressive with my lack of viable fingerprints. Hunted criminals try to “erase” their fingerprints. No fingerprints = suspicion. The meme question to me is then: “Who are you, anyway?” This blog has sported many accounts of this occurrence which, being so frequent, is humorous.
The last fingerprinting event came about as part of the process of getting permission for second amendment Constitutional rights here in what the Sheriff has declared to be a 2A sanctuary: Cherokee County of North Carolina. The nice officer worked it seemed for an exaggerated amount of time in an attempt to acquire something, anything of recordable data for any would-be fingerprint so as to send these off to the State Bureau of Investigation. “Maybe two or three partials, maybe,” she said after many repeated attempts, exasperated that she had reached the limit of attempts possible in the law. “I’ll send what I have to the SBI, but they will reject this immediately and we will have to go through this multiple times, setting up more appointments on this end and waiting possibly for weeks each time, and then sending it all to them and waiting. This may add months to your request for getting permission. But after many attempts they also will have to accept what is there and send whatever it is off to the FBI. And then we’ll wait again.”
“No worries,” thought I. “There are other ways of ascertaining who I am, and there will be no problem at all,” thought I, smiling with sardonic contentedness. Indeed, the SBI instantaneously approved me first try – instantaneously – but not because of any viable fingerprints. The nice fingerprinting officer was shocked about this, once again giving me the “Who are you anyway?” look, and offering comments of amazement. It is to laugh.
UPSHOT: I could never fire a gun that wouldn’t fire without immediately viable fingerprints, which wouldn’t work anyway except in perfect laboratory conditions regarding temperature (cold and hot not working), no gloves (which are common when working, and/or when in cold areas, like from Texas to Canada), no sweat (that you otherwise would have even in cold weather when there is an adrenaline pumping situation), no mud, no dirt, no new scrapes since the last fingerprint scan, no blood, and no switching of hands when your own fingers of your strong hand have been shot off (a not super-infrequent occurrence as you draw up with your self-defense tool right in front of you), a bad grip for reason of broken fingers and you shove a trigger finger into the trigger guard all the way to the palm of your hand to get some viable muscle to pull the trigger (no fingerprints there), and so on.
But I don’t have fingerprints to begin with. So, how is this Constitutional? I’m a citizen in good standing, and I’m being infringed. And, yes, I have a many reasons for carrying my now permitted concealed carry tool, also openly carried here in North Carolina and in this 2A sanctuary of Cherokee County.
The joke in these days about any gun confiscation is to say: “Oh! I’m so sorry dearest confiscation officers! I would hand over all my guns but I lost them in a boating accident!” But let’s update that for my situation:
“I lost my fingerprints in a boating accident.”
Go ahead and laugh at my stupidity, as I got what I deserved: While I’ve always had trouble fingerprinting, this intensified when building the hermitage now many years ago. I needed to fill in gaps under the rafters and I used expanding foam. I didn’t read the directions and so didn’t wear gloves. This was like a gorilla glue in the hair experience. My hands had glops of foam all over them. I’ll just wash that off before it dries, thought I. Nope. Rubbing alcohol? Nope. Gasoline? Nope. I finally read the warnings on the spray-can. Uh-oh. I then tried an abrasive pot scrubber. Nope. My heart fell. I entrenched. Steel wool? Yep. After many sessions, many hours each, my hands were entirely raw. It worked, but…
“You see these marks?” asked the nice law enforcement fingerprinting officer, showing me printouts of my non-fingerprints. “The story is embarrassing,” said I, but then I recounted the story above. There was deserved rolling of eyes. I laugh at myself as well.
But should I lose my second amendment under Wuhan Joe just because I didn’t read directions on a spray foam can while going a zillion miles an hour in just getting things done in my construction tasks, even triple tasking? Even someone who makes a mistake with a spray foam can still has second amendment rights, right? Believe me, that mistake will never be made again. We can learn from mistakes. And this wasn’t criminal and there was no criminal intent.
Having said all this, I still have two requests for Diplomatic Security.
