West Wing bashing Jews: text without context is pretext. Bashing one is bashing all. Wuhan Joe wants bashing all believers to be the law.

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.

“Can’t happen…” Tell this to Jesus’ good mom:

Gun confiscation fingerprints? I kind of lost them in a boating accident…

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.”

“Permission.”

“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.

Unrelated, surely

Interesting, that, coming from the Dems. Just a little irony there. Or maybe this is hypocritical.

Oh wait! What’s this? Ilhan Omar is now the U.S. House of Representatives Vice Chair of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee.

Ilhan Omar is the one who entirely dismissed the terrorist events of September 11, 2001 as “Some people did something.” But, we shouldn’t read anything into anything, right?

But, wait! Then we have this:

Mother Teresa 1994 vs POTUS Joe Biden 2021 at National Prayer Breakfast

Thank you, Mother Teresa, for standing up for the least of the brethren in the womb, for standing up for Jesus who said, What you have done to the least of these you have done to me.

Then there’s the monster POTUS Joe Biden, who hasn’t gotten the message fully 25 years later. For Wuhan Joe, no babies in the womb are our fellow human beings. Get a barf bucket ready…

Made in China 2A flag? No.

“Just testing!” is what a 28-year military intel friend is surely going to exclaim to me when I roll my eyes at him next time I see him, likely tomorrow. He gave me the flag pictured above the other day – all packaged up – and then ran. Can you see any problems here?

  • The subtle reading: “A well regulated [read: infringed upon] 2nd Amendment…” … “shall not be infringed.”

“Father George, you’re exaggerating. It’s just artistic license to lay things out that way. It doesn’t mean that the Kamala Biden proclaimed infringements on the second amendment are not themselves to be infringed. That would be too clever. Come on, man…”

  • There are 14 stars on this flag. There was never even once a flag with fourteen stars. Federally accepted flags jumped in numbers of stars relatively infrequently. The first jump was from 13 to 15 stars.

“Father George, you can’t possibly be thinking that China is subtly pushing for the District of Columbia to become a full state so as to sway what happens with infringement of the 2nd Amendment are you? Come on, man… Just because Chinese Communist Party is continuously complaining that there is a grave problem in these USA until there is full-on gun confiscation doesn’t mean a thing. Do we have to do bring you out back of the gym or do a pushup contest, you dog-faced pony soldier?”

I agree. Surely this is just a mistake of someone who doesn’t know how to run a word processor banner widget thingy. I get it. But I also could never hang this insult to America anywhere. This “flag” will be burned forthwith.

I think I passed the test.

Covid “vaccine” misinformation campaign foibles but not

The move to give vaccines to GTMO terrorists would get attention. This would be a forced vaccine, btw. Attention was to be had, for sure, but not what was expected…

So, predictably, Biden backed off for a moment, meaning it’s still going ahead, the forced vaccine part, and because it’s in the future, just not today, it’s all good, you know, the forced part…

As this is carried out in future, all Federal, State and local prisoners, whether citizens or not, will receive the vaccine, except that it will be forced.

This will set a precedent for forcing the vaccine on everyone. Mark my words.

And remember, the vaccine is not a vaccine, not an inoculation. It is technically a “medical device” and falls under “medical device” law. It is gene therapy. When your genetics are changed that change can be easily manipulated by the very people who changed your DNA structure. You are more manipulatable in your health. But we are supposed to trust the Chinese Communist Party at Wuhan Joe’s word, right?

WNC 2A Sanctuary? To honor Wuhan Joe I ordered 10-rd Gen4 G19 mags. But…

I’m in a Second Amendment Sanctuary here in Cherokee County of WNC. That’s voluntary on the part of the Sheriff and actually covers basically nothing. But that’s not to say that pressure won’t be put on governors of States by the Biden admin to enforce new and draconian dictates, with the pressure in the form of promised Federal funding for infrastructure or whatever not being distributed to those States if there is no compliance. In this State of N.C. there would be enthusiastic and gleeful compliance by the Governor with anything desired by the Biden administration.

So far the rumor mill has it that Wuhan Joe has been pushing that anyone in possession of factory issue (15 round) mags supplied with, say, a Glock 19, are to be treated like full-on terrorists in possession of weapons of mass destruction even though they are citizens in good standing and carry (licensed) only for defense against the threat of non-provoked mortal aggression continuing to be delivered in whatever unfortunate incident. Those who carry in N.C. have been put through the wringer with perhaps the most stringent background checks in these USA, the process taking something like 4-5 months. I guess it doesn’t matter if I’m an ICPC law enforcement chaplain, and that I’ve openly packed heat uncountable times while out and about with law enforcement, even on a planned SWAT style raid (at the invite of the Police Chief), and that I uphold this Constitutional Republic with the Rule of Law and the respect to be given to God-given rights.

Wuhan Joe wants mags to be able to hold no more than 10 rounds each… Before there’s a run on 10 round mags, I ordered a few so as to be good to go.

Since I carry one mag locked in the Glock, with one round chambered, with two mags in a mag holster… if those mags have only ten rounds each that means I’ll have 31 rounds total. It used to be 46.

  • “Both 46 and even 31 rounds is crazy-headed, Father George! If you are any kind of a good shot you shouldn’t need more than the ol’ service revolver six-shooter. Even then, anything more than a couple shots from a Derringer is… well… just… you must be a ridiculously bad shot and it’s all just crazy-headed!”

I’ve heard that from a lot of gun fanatics, even NRA instructors. Yep. But I’m not sure if any of them actually put in the time to see what things are like on the pavement, out with local law enforcement.

If I had only 31 rounds I would be dead right now, you know, if I were the cop in the video below. He faced just one guy who initiated and continued shooting at the this police officer, who is himself a firearms instructor for law enforcement and the head of his local SWAT… He needed more than 31 rounds. He had a Glock 21, three mags of 13 +1 chambered = 40 rounds total. He had only four rounds left, meaning he shot 36. The very last three (bullets 34, 35 and 36) were necessary for him to survive. If he had only 31 rounds he would be a dead man. With the experience described in the video below, he now carries 145 rounds… He’s still alive. Good for him.

But, I kind of agree with my gun fanatic friends who insist that I should be such a good shot that it’ll always be the case that it is only one shot that will ever be needed to stop a mortal threat from continuing to be delivered…

But given changing circumstances and conditions such as those outlined in the video above, that’s simply not reality. And there are always changing conditions. Perps initiating and delivering mortal aggression don’t stand still like a paper target the size of a small car three yards out in sterile conditions of an indoor range.

Also, these days, there is an absence of ammo, so that the edge of perishable skill sets can be somewhat dulled. I’m no James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok, a “natural” gunslinger. I need practice to keep up with the fundamentals, with the necessary speed, with the necessary accuracy. In this time of zero ammo, there is an outside however slight chance that I may need more than just one shot to stop a threat, especially if threats these days are wearing level 4 body armor.

But you can’t always choose not to be in some untoward situations unfolding in nanoseconds before you. Some situations are very bad and very evil. Like in the video above. Too bad I’ll only have 31 rounds.

“Wuhan Virus” reference outlawed by China-Joe POTUS

Upon the executive order of China-Joe POTUS – “that vixen” (Luke 13:32) – all Federal documents are being scrubbed of any reference to “China Virus” or “Wuhan Virus”, and no Federal employee will be allowed to speak such words since they are racist words, he says, spoken only by xenophobes who are intolerant.

I recall Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s words on being tolerant. Those promoting absolute tolerance only of their own views, such as demanding the promotion and protection of the most blood thirsty of the Chinese Communist Party, congratulate themselves as being broadminded. But the Venerable Sheen quipped that those who are so broadminded are themselves flat-headed. He’s on his way to being canonized. Those who agree with him are on their way to being martyred.

Just to be nice, let’s call it the Chinese Communist Party Virus, or CCP Virus for short. That exonerates 99.999999999% of the great Chinese people suffering the murderous oppression of the CCP and places the responsibility on just a few people of a political party promoted and protected by Vixen-Joe.

Does the Biden family have any connection to the CCP? Just wondering. Just a question.

Anyway, I doubt that my limited reference to the CCP Virus will stop me from getting arrested by the Feds should I travel through the Federal Forests everywhere in my church-parish territories here in WNC and then make brave, while doing so, to mention the CCP Virus, like, out loud and everything, as the Wuhan Virus, or the China Virus. Indeed, I might just be accused of the same even if I didn’t do that. Same difference, right? Accusation is guilt. One is guilty until one proves oneself to be innocent (which can’t be done with such people, you know, the likes of a Pontius Pilate and his Kangaroo court).

The coddling cuddling of American politicians turned Chinese spies and operatives speaks to the brutal suppression of the American Constitution and the Rule of Law.

If any Federal agent, operative, worker can be fined and jailed for hate crimes such as saying “Wuhan Virus” or “China Virus”, then, by analogy, by precedent, so can any citizen otherwise in good standing in these USA be fined and imprisoned as well.

Why should a priest be worried about such merely political things? Because they are not merely political.

When free speech is attacked, all rights are attacked, including the free exercise of religion. It all happens very quickly.

Too Tall Trees and Green New Deal. Excommunicating Joe Biden

The tree above was to be seen just behind the backyard of the rectory. This too tall tree was threatening many homes and many lives. It had to go. It was barely alive anyway. In some of the more marxist regions of these USA to cut down such a tree would be an offence that could send you to prison. People don’t matter.

It seems to me that the Green New Deal crowd have been staring at the trees of this world with the dumbed-down-vision epistemologically appropriate to the those who have eaten from the Tree-of-Knowing-Good-Dumbed-Down-by-Evil (to provide a better translation of that phrase in Genesis).

The Green New Deal purveyors cannot possibly hold human lives to be in need of protection over against an aging tree ready to crash down and crush their homes. Dems’ GND: It’s the human lives who are the enemies of the State, the enemies of the Green New Deal, you know, just because those human lives are now living. Yep.

Actually, what the Green New Deal comes down to is forcing abortion of human lives. If you’ve been following the interventions of Dem administrations at the United Nations over these last few decades you’ll know what I mean. I have many stories to tell, one in particular though, about Mr Environmentalist himself, Albert Arnold Gore Jr., outside FAO in Rome. Even tough ol’ Al acted out his over-compensation in front of my “spies”, among whom papabile are numbered. :-)

No matter what the “policy” [one letter diverse from “police”] the Dems inserted “language” about reducing populations whom the dark powers want eliminated, you know, all those Catholics, all those black and brown lives. Yep. “Is this a statement on agriculture and food supply? Make sure there is no population that needs food and it will all be good.” Always something like that, from a thousand different directions. These Dems feed on the demonic power of murdering the helpless in the womb. They are puppets for the demonic lion raging about looking for whom he can devour.

Check out the elimination of the Mexico City Policy by anti-Catholic pro-Green-New-Deal Joey Biden just now: “Let’s force abortion on all black and brown lives!”

Why is Joey Biden not excommunicated? “No, no! Not that! Give Joe Biden Holy Communion!” the anti-Catholic Archbishop of Washington D.C. screams at his priests.

Meanwhile… meanwhile… This priest is enthusiastically looking forward to the persecution to come. I only pray I am worthy to suffer for the honor of Jesus’ Holy Name:

  • The Apostles were “rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the Name”(Acts 5:41).

Remember, excommunication is the discipline used with truly fatherly church governance to medicinally bring back to the fold those who have by their own choice taken themselves out of communion with the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Praying for Pope Francis and POTUS Biden makes me an enemy of God?

When Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was first presented to the world as Pope Francis, when pretty much all the more “traditional” Catholics condemned him so severely that one was condemned for asking for prayers for him, I nevertheless insisted that to be a good son of the Church I must pray for him, also at Holy Mass. But what I call the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ist began a cancel campaign for anyone promoting, say, this prayer:

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro N.
R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]

Pater Noster… Ave Maria…

Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum N., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

The ultramontane heresy of the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists is that the Pope must be immaculately conceived and is not ever to have personally sinned, so that he has no need of our prayers and no need of Christ Jesus to be his Savior. Because that is not the case (ever), the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists went all apoplectic in their heresy of ultamontinism and continued in condemning him to the point of condemning those who prayed for him. Too sad. We will all stand before Him whom we have all pierced, all of us, men of every tribe and race and people and nation. What’s there not to understand with this. We pray for the Pope as we pray for each other.

  • “Father George, you don’t understand. If you pray for Pope Francis that means that you agree with everything he says no matter what and you’re going to go to hell just like him because we said so and everything!

Sigh. Remember Peter, who denied our Lord three times and only later became Saint Peter? I’m guessing that he was martyred because Divine Jesus’ good mom, the Immaculate Virgin, prayed for him, already then assumed to heaven soul and body, Queen of heaven and earth, angels and men. We follow her lead. Get it?

But what about praying the likes of the present POTUS Joe Biden, the most anti-Catholic pro-abort ever? Saint Peter himself has something to say about that (1 Peter 2:11-17):

  • “Beloved, I urge you as aliens and sojourners to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against the soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation. Be subject to every human institution for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the king as supreme or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the approval of those who do good. For it is the will of God that by doing good you may silence the ignorance of foolish people. Be free, yet without using freedom as a pretext for evil, but as slaves of God. Give honor to all, love the community, fear God, honor the king.”

A generation later, in the Letter to Diognetus, from waaaaaaaay back in the day, like the end of the first or beginning of the second century, addressed to the early Christians, all Catholic, of course, we read this:

  • “For the Christians are distinguished from other men neither by country, nor language, nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own, nor employ a peculiar form of speech, nor lead a life which is marked out by any singularity. The course of conduct which they follow has not been devised by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3 They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. Philippians 3:20 They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives. They love all men, and are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned; they are put to death, and restored to life. 2 Corinthians 6:9 They are poor, yet make many rich; 2 Corinthians 6:10 they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonored, and yet in their very dishonor are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless; 2 Corinthians 4:12 they are insulted, and repay the insult with honor; they do good, yet are punished as evil-doers. When punished, they rejoice as if quickened into life; they are assailed by the Jews as foreigners, and are persecuted by the Greeks; yet those who hate them are unable to assign any reason for their hatred. /// To sum up all in one word — what the soul is in the body, Christians are in the world. The soul is dispersed through all the members of the body, and Christians are scattered through all the cities of the world. The soul dwells in the body, yet is not of the body; and Christians dwell in the world, yet are not of the world. The invisible soul is guarded by the visible body, and Christians are known indeed to be in the world, but their godliness remains invisible. The flesh hates the soul, and wars against it, 1 Peter 2:11 though itself suffering no injury, because it is prevented from enjoying pleasures; the world also hates the Christians, though in nowise injured, because they abjure pleasures. The soul loves the flesh that hates it, and [loves also] the members; Christians likewise love those that hate them. The soul is imprisoned in the body, yet keeps together that very body; and Christians are confined in the world as in a prison, and yet they keep together the world. The immortal soul dwells in a mortal tabernacle; and Christians dwell as sojourners in corruptible [bodies], looking for an incorruptible dwelling in the heavens. The soul, when but ill-provided with food and drink, becomes better; in like manner, the Christians, though subjected day by day to punishment, increase the more in number. God has assigned them this illustrious position, which it were unlawful for them to forsake.”

FIERY homily against Biden! Who is this priest anyway? Fr Nathan the Prophet

No, really, you gotta watch the whole thing. Follow into the crescendo. Just a few minutes. It’s like you can see the fiery Holy Spirit. YES!!!

This priest IS the prophet Nathan thundering against King David (Biden):

“YOU ARE THE MAN!”

Who is this guy and where? I so want to reach out to him to thank him, bless him, encourage him.

Update: whenever I myself want a bit of encouragement, I’ll listen to this.

PS: As Father said, we want Joe to convert.

PS: I’m listening to this again… ;-)

PS: Full confession: I’m listening to this yet again! I love it! Thank you, Father.

===================

The following was King David’s response. We pray that Joe Biden will follow.

[Psalm 51:1 For the leader. A psalm of David, 2 when Nathan the prophet came to him after his affair with Bathsheba.]

Have mercy on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant compassion blot out my offense. Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me. For I know my offense; my sin is always before me. Against you alone have I sinned; I have done such evil in your sight That you are just in your sentence, blameless when you condemn.
True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me. Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my inmost being teach me wisdom. Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me whiter than snow. Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt. A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your holy spirit. Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing spirit. I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return to you….

As Trump departs to Florida, Comey promotes burning of Republicans

Oh! He meant the Republican Party! Sorry! Oh! I forgot! The Republican Party is made up of American Citizens, about 100% of whom are citizens are peaceful and are in good standing, but who are now considered Domestic Terrorists along the lines of ISIS. And you know what happens to terrorists, don’t you?

Oops! No surprise: Joe Biden has already reversed the Mexico City Policy. Our Lady of Guadalupe is not pleased. Nor are the angels. Innumerable children will be put to death because of what Joe Biden has already done with his presidency.

Oh, but wait, there’s more that I forgot, stupid Catholic priest that I am: the Holy See gave Joe Biden 100% praise, forbidding any critique of his pro-abortion, pro-“gay-marriage”, anti-free exercise of religion, anti-Catholicism until the Holy See got into the messaging game first with their 100% praise.

That’s a photoshop from quite a while back. But it seems to me that the purpose of the Holy See being joined at the hip with Joe Biden, stomping around in jackboots, kicking faithful Catholics in the face, is to make you depressed, go into despair, specifically so that you lose your soul. This is Satan’s trick. Always. I’ve seen this 100% of the time I’ve been called upon to do an exorcism in any of these past decades, in people of every age, race, background, culture, country. Satan wants you to lose hope, because then Satan wins.

So, instead… be hopeful, doing your best to carry the treasure of God’s good grace and love and truth in broken vessels in this world as Saint Paul has it. The fiery Holy Spirit to make us members of the Body of Christ, with Jesus. Jesus is stronger than death. He means to bring us to heaven. But we have to agree to let him do this. We have to have the integrity and honesty in His grace to keep the commandments in all truth. We’re weak, but all things are possible with Jesus. Set your sights on heaven, be hidden with Christ in God.

Re-discovering Fulton Sheen, the most brilliant critic of the Communist State

“Communism will never be conquered, it must be converted.”

There are useless arguments as to whether or not we have prayed enough so that the bishops in unison with Saint John Paul II consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Useless! Why?

Right now, we are to pray the Rosary and make Eucharistic Reparation so that our Bishops today, including and in unison with Pope Francis, can for the first time or second time, specifically consecrate Russian to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That would be good, would it not?

  • “That’s not possible Father George! That’s a tall order you got there. Do you really think the Archbishop of Washington is going to do this while he is given our Eucharistic Jesus to the most anti-Catholic president in the history of these USA?”

Ah yes… despair and cynicism… Jesus said: “Nothing is impossible with God.”

Fr Kirby: fake Catholics spit in Jesus’ face voting for anti-Catholic Biden

Yep. All the self-congratulatory, clever, sophisticated, blue-haired, always rich, always elitist, upturned noses, social justice warriors who want to defend that they themselves have had a half dozen abortions, who have used abortifacients the rest of the time, who have promoted contraception with their friends, all of them are ones who voted for fake Catholic Joey, who have created hells of division in their parish churches, who have made their churches into Dem hell-holes.

The problem is, I couldn’t speak to my congregation in this way as I can’t think of even one person at church who would ever vote for Joey the fake-Catholic. Of course, I can complain about those who have done this, fake Catholics as they are, in places not far from where I am writing this. Well, they can congratulate themselves for now. Sure. But Christ our God will come again to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. They had better repent while they have the chance. It won’t be long until there will be no more Mass, no more Confessions. They have brought this upon themselves, upon all of us.

Oh, and just to say it:

I don’t care if it’s the Pope himself, if Joey the fake Catholic ever presented himself for Holy Communion in my Church, not only would he be refused (a spiritual favor to him), but, if he made a scene, you know, his usual “c’mon man, let’s fight out back or let’s do pushups, you dog faced pony soldier,” well then, I would have him escorted from Church and charged with the crime of interrupting a religious service. And if the Secret Service intervened so as to set up a cage-fight or push-up match, I would simply stop the distribution of Holy Communion and finish Holy Mass, ignoring the antics of the most pro-abortion, most pro-gay-marriage, most anti-free-exercise-of-religion, anti-Catholic president in USA history. This would never happen in my church:

The usual anti-Catholic ecclesiastics will surely be contacting the Chancery of the diocese, again, to complain that I’m being political. Whatever.

Here’s the deal. If I complain that someone is sending themselves to hell by presenting themselves for Holy Communion even while openly persecuting the Church it’s not because I’m an ol’ meanie, cruel. No. It’s because I want the likes of Joe Biden to repent and go to heaven, with the primary emphasis on repenting. That’s necessary. Those who don’t instruct Joey Biden or who stop that from happening, cancelling priests faithful to Christ our God and His Church, it is also they who are risking going straight to hell. I don’t want that either. I want as many in heaven as who will repent and thus be open to going to heaven.

The upshot? … Good for you, Father Kirby!

Denying Joe Biden Communion? Of course! My Canon 915!

A comment came in from a supposed Kanuck who doubts that she may be welcome to comment seeing that she is a Kanuck. I guess she has an ultra-nationalist sway, but she can ask herself about that one. I wanted to give that comment a bit more of an audience and so I’m placing it here, but with my [comments]:

/// I’m a Canadian; so, I concede that I’ve little ‘right’ to comment on this topic [No, really, go ahead!]; but, I find it difficult to understand HOW a Priest of the Catholic Church can deliberately, and publicly, sully the professed ‘Catholicism’ [you put that in scare-quotes, didn’t you? Isn’t that a hypocrisy on your part?] of a public, political figure [She’s talking about Joey Biden at this post: Joe Biden: anti-Catholic, anti-human and horrifically racist… says this priest ] — on the word (gossip?) of another Priest [Umm… “this priest” in the title refers to me, the publisher and owner and writer of this blog, so I guess you’re gossiping about me gossiping, are you not?]. I sincerely believe that such would be the ‘job’ of the appropriate Bishop (who could then, publicly deny Mr. Biden his ability to receive The Eucharist ‘in good faith’). [Well, I don’t care what you sincerely believe. And I didn’t mention denying Joey Holy Communion in that post, did I? Anyway, living in Ottawa as you do you would think you could do a bit more research on the Canon Law of this matter with the Dominicans at Université Saint-Paul, where a good friend directs doctoral theses in Canon Law. But, nooo…. you jump right into it. Check out Canon 915 there missy. Or maybe you did and you don’t actually like all that hierarchical stuff like promulgated universal law of the Church. And I see you put “in good faith” regarding the Bishop[!] in scare quotes, or are you referring to Biden? Pfft.] Such is the situation here, in Canada, where Mr. Trudeau — who claims to be Catholic — has very publicly stated that he is ‘pro-abortion’ [and why would you put pro-abortion in scare quotes?]; and that he has no intention of ever ‘reversing’ or ‘changing’ the Law regarding abortion! [I guess your scare quotes mean you think that reverse or change of abortion law is just impossible anyway?] After that, the Bishop of Ottawa PUBLICLY stated that Mr. Trudeau would no longer be able to participate in receiving “the Body and the Blood of Christ”. However, several weeks later, a Catholic Elder Statesman died; and in honor of the deceased, a TELEVISED Catholic Funeral was held for him at The Cathedral in Montreal, Quebec (where he had resided). The church was packed, and Mr. & Mrs. Trudeau sat right at the front of the church. So, when the time came for the reception of the Eucharist, Mr. & Mrs. Trudeau were the first to present themselves at the Communion rail — and they both received The Body & Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ!! Needless to say, I was shocked … that Mr. Trudeau had even DARED to present himself to receive Communion; and that the Bishop of Montreal did not seem to know that this privilege had been revoked for Mr. Trudeau, by the Bishop of Ottawa! I considered it a public scandal; but no one in the Church and NO ‘Catholic’ clergy ever publicly said one more word about it. [So, you want me to sully their names on the hearsay of others? I wasn’t there. But I’m to take this from you?] ///

====================

Here’s the deal: Joey Biden doesn’t think he is sullying his name or that I am sullying his name just because I present what he has done with all of his pro-abortion, pro-gay-marriage, pro-persecution of the Catholic Church, pro-forced transgender rubbish, etc. Joey Biden sullies his name all on his own. He’s proud of it. What are you talking about?

Regarding denying Holy Communion to notorious sinners such as Biden and Pelosi and Kerry and Teddy Kennedy back in the day, and so on, even an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion is to deny Holy Communion to such notorious sinners even if there has been no previous warning and even if there has been no consultation with the pastor of the parish, the priest of that Mass, the bishop, the metropolitan, the bishops conference, whatever. Notorious sinners must be denied, on the spot, every time. Joe Biden is one of the most notorious sinners in world history. And not even a bishops conference can undo the universal law of the Church. A priest or EMHC denying Joe Biden Holy Communion is not being disobedient to any bishop who demands that Joe Biden be given Holy Communion. No. We are not to be obedient to a sinful order. Ecclesiastical authorities who demand sin are acting ultra vires, beyond their powers, and in doing that they lose authority for that demand.

Anecdote: Just because the commenter seems to be purposely ignorant of Canon 915 (I’ll leave that up to her own exam of conscience) doesn’t mean that others are ignorant of it.

Back in the day I was parochial vicar in the most liberal parish in Australia, and that’s saying quite a bit. There had been horrific world-class scandal and sin in that parish on a very public scale. The larger picture involved deacon-whistleblowers getting sacked, priests being laicized, priests getting married to the secretaries who became rectory cleaners[!] while the priests continued as grounds crew; bishops and cardinals galore were involved, and some of those were sacked. It all came to a head again when I said I was going to refuse one of the extremely unrepentant and super-public miscreants Holy Communion. All hell broke loose. But that’s a very long story, epic in every way. What happened made it’s way through rank and file of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and finally to a General Congregation where is was the pivotal example that would keep Canon 915 as is, and not weakened. It silenced all objections to Canon 915. I have a lot of friends in a lot of high places. Thank you […]. And thank you – at the time – Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, and thank you, now Saint Pope John Paul II. :-)

Just to say: I have been so tempted through the years – and I still might do this – tempted to get a license plate for the car which says CANON915. That’s eight letters, and in North Carolina you get eight letters to use on a personalized license plate. :-)

Joe Biden 2020÷666=30330

“Go to Joe at 30330.” Joey later said that this was a gaffe, not the 30330 part, but the Joe part. He said he wanted to say that if you support Joe, text him at 30330. He also said that overnight his campaign got lots of money for this.

But what is 30330? After Mass yesterday, one of my parishioners said to turn on the calculator on the desk. I did. He said, tap in 2020. I did. He said, divide that by 666. I did. He said, now press enter. I asked him to do it!

The result was 30330.

Yikes! said I. Yes, he said, explaining that he had just seen this going around the web and that he thought I would immediately get the upshot of this, or better, see the precipitousness of the darkness of the swamp.

Joey later said that it was great for the money during the night. “The night.”

I have this post also tagged with “Humor”, but there can be much truth in humor.

Joe Biden: anti-Catholic, anti-human and horrifically racist… says this priest

Outrageous: Biden said there should be a total lockdown, which also and in the very first place means no worship of God in church, not now, not – perhaps – until nearing 2022. But, by the way, all places that have done this have suffered crippling “second waves” which are not second waves, but that which has exaggeratedly put off the inevitable. It is a given that Covid-19 is so contagious that everyone in the world will get it. It’s but a matter of sooner or later, flattening the curve over time, not getting rid of the curve. Graham County in my parish had a horrific total lockdown enforced, ironically, with someone actively with Covid. Now they have a zillion cases. Almost all those are no-symptoms-cases. What’s the point of the no-worship policy, whether Joey, given his mental status, knows it or not? Just that: Damned be all who worship God. This is anti-Catholic, anti-God.

Outrageous: Joe Biden said police should be trained to shoot the legs of perps. This is entirely ignorant because you’re actually very likely to survive a hit to the torso, even multiple hits, but a hit to the leg will more than likely hit a major artery and you will bleed out immediately. Also, you’re extremely likely to miss the often toothpick sized legs of druggy perps, causing risk of ricochets and risk to the officer who has now lost the time he needed to end the threat. And every second can save lives. This whole thing is anti-human.

Outrageous: Joe Biden said that if an 8 year old boy says that wants to be a girl that should not be questioned and he should be given the “medical” treatment needed to bring that about. This attacks the rights of parents. This attacks the rights of the child as it is a denial that the child is a minor, meaning, specifically, that the child is defenseless against the unjust aggression of societal brainwashing regarding matters of sex. Activists will go after religious families first, as always. The parents will pay the bills. The children will simply be removed if they are “denied” “treatment.” This should preclude his election to the presidency.

But mostly outrageous: Joe Biden and his “running mate” hotly, hotly desire the status quo, that 2,000 kids every weekday are ripped to shreds in their mothers’ wombs (10,000) and another 10,000 every Saturday (20,000 a week) by way of procured abortion. Joe Biden wants you to pay for it. Joe Biden wants you to pay for abortion right across the world. I’d like to take the faces of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and every single person who votes for them and mash their faces into the corpses of – what is it? – something like 63,000,000 procured abortions in these USA since 1973. Abortion has always been pushed among the black and brown, putting clinics in their neighborhoods, reducing, mind you, non-white populations by something like 25%. This is racist genocide. Yep. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This is all a direct attack on the image of God. It is anti-God, anti-human.

Meanwhile: The Cyrus of our own day is the most pro-free-exercise-of-religion non-Catholic politician in the history of the world. The Cyrus of our own day is the most pro-life non-Catholic politician in the history of the world. Et cetera on a thousand points.

So, who is this priest going to endorse do you think? Oh, right, I forgot. I can’t go there. I won’t tell you who to vote for. I’ll just tell you, as a priest, that if you vote for one you risk going straight to hell. If you vote for the other, you vote against that hell.

I can’t wait to get threatened canonical litigation from… from… I think it’s a Catholic… I think it’s a Religious… in Charlotte… As it is, I didn’t endorse anyone, did I? No.

I can’t wait to get threatened canonical litigation from… from… an ex-Catholic, an attorney of some kind, out in crazy California. He actually dropped a comment a while back. But, as it is, I didn’t endorse anyone, did I? No.

On behalf of Joe Biden: I think he suffering elder-abuse, that he is manipulated by others. Is that what you are voting for in voting for Joe Biden? Yes. Yes, it is. Joe Biden voters and dismissive of God and dismissive of neighbor. And who is your neighbor? Also that little guy and little gal in the womb. Save them. You must.

Danger Zone: church spin (Covid & Politics edition)

In the last few days, the thugs and buffoons have been spinning away in the parking lot of the church, faster and looser, always more “courageous”, always a bit more wildly spinning the backs of their cars into the main road with a blind curve on the one side and a blind hill on the other, also barely missing the electric pole, risking the whole time T-boning a family just picked up from school. That’s the point. Endangering families. For the narcissistic, that’s what feeds narcissistic “fun.” The joy of the narcissist it to find one’s identity in the destruction of others. If people die for such stupidity, that’s all part of it, for the narcissists. But, no matter how good you are on spin, you’ll get caught in the end:

The video above is the live unedited news version of the takedown which includes the total smackdown arrest at the end. For old times sake, I also include the version below with “Good ol’ boys” playing in the background, just for fun. You gotta know that the officers – I’m quite sure – were also having a bit of fun with all this, but especially in the total smackdown arrest. ;-)

The problem is, the thugs and buffoons think the fun bit is all there ever is. Endangering others’ lives, and “not just” the lives of the police officers, means nothing to them. It’s just about congratulating themselves for how good the spin is. That the spin makes their entire lives a lie is what puts the edge on it all for them.

Some might say that the spin in the church parking lot has intensified in proportion to the intensification of the spin inside the church, in that opinion, from the pulpit, and, in that opinion, from the bully pulpit during my homilies and sermons.

There has been zero hesitation in smacking down the spin of our democrat governor in all his freakish discrimination against religious practice, adamantly promoting ABC liquor stores remaining open as essential while kicking churches in the face, again and again, entrenching with sarcasm. And that’s not spin from any pulpit. Just the facts. We rebel against this State hatred of the Church, this persecution of the Church by the State. We condemn the hateful spin of the State against religion.

  • “The earth could exist more easily without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.” – Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

And then there’s the stupidity on the insistence of practical atheism entitled the “separation of Church and State” so that the “free exercise of religion” guaranteed by the very First Amendment of the Constitution, with the end result that the Church can and must be persecuted by the State so as to free of the Church in order to be the State, smashing down, therefore, necessarily, all “free exercise of religion.”

The Covid-19 political manipulations have brought the democrat spin forward into further persecution. No longer is it just about changing the “free exercise of religion” to the “freedom of worship”, but now it is about changing “freedom of worship” into “NO freedom to worship.”

And this has been a reason for civil war in many countries around the world, viz., 1920s Mexico, during which time Cristeros rebelled against government oppression. Finally, now, 100 years later, they have at least partially won the day, just as the last Cristero died just some years ago.

But even worse, we are told by certain wimpy ecclesiastics (such as in the USCCB) that we cannot evaluate moral issues in such manner that one candidate is going to look worse than the other. What the anti-life, anti-Catholic Catholic Bishops are saying is that, for instance, we cannot say that the Biden-Harris ticket (Ooooh! I used names!) is the most pro-death, pro-abortion, anti-Catholic, pro-persecution of religion political platform in the history of the world, and that the Trump-Pence ticket (Ooooh! I used names!) is the most pro-life from conception to natural death, pro-Catholic specifically and pro-“free exercise of religion” generally political platform in the history of the world, that is, when the times are tough, when this is not a popular thing to do even among some idiot Catholics-in-name-only.

  • If you are pro-death, wanting with all your heart and soul and mind and strength to have 20,000 children in the womb and just born to be shredded to death each and every week, day-in and day-out, you hate both God (in whose image we are made) and neighbor. You hate women, who have as a most frequent day to commit suicide the day they have an abortion. You hate “black” and “brown” people in an especially racist, genocidal manner, with abortuaries being strategically placed in neighborhoods of predominantly “black” and “brown” people. But let me underline that you are adamant in hating God, no matter how much you congratulate yourself on being up-to-date, no matter how elitist and sophisticated and a pillar of society and a social justice warrior you hold yourself to be. You risk going straight to hell. In the end, in your spin, you will be smacked down. Go to Confession. Venerable Fulton Sheen used to say: Don’t be so tolerant and broadminded that you are flat-headed. Yes. Flat-headed for being smacked down in the end.
  • If you are pro-life, and will do your level best to ensure that the country goes in a pro-life direction, you obviously love God and neighbor even un-bennounced to yourself. You risk going straight to heaven. Do yourself a favor: also go to Church even against the persecution of the Church by the State; go to the sacraments also; always be ready to go to heaven. Will you go into the “danger zone” of State spin against the Church? Yes. But – hey! – that’s all part of it. Go right to the cross with Jesus, witness to the truth and to love and to respect for neighbor. Help your neighbor not to be smacked down in hell forever just because of stupid spin.

Since dad was a Top Gun instructor at Andrews just outside of DC before there was such a program, I thought I might include some Danger Zone Top Gun music. Go ahead. Go into the danger zone! ;-)

Priest responds to Catholic League’s Bill Donohue blasting Federal Electoral Commission Chairman Trey Trainor

Bulleted points (or in Italics on different platforms) in quotations marks are from Catholic League’s Bill Donohue (CL for short):

  • “Trey Trainor, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, is accusing the bishops of refusing to partake in electoral politics because they are more interested in receiving federal funds than they are in mobilizing Catholics. He even goes so far as to say that priests should disobey their bishop.”
  • “Trainor says, “the bishops are using their non-profit status as a shield to hide behind from having to make a decision about who to support.” Why? Because they want federal dollars. “To look at the amount of money the Church receives for social services, I would say that they have a big fear of provoking the government into pulling money away from activities the Church is involved in.”

Up to this point, I agree with Trey Trainor. Great! But then CL has this:

  • “In actual fact, the bishops have always been reluctant—properly so—to tell Catholics who to vote for in an election. We don’t go to church to get lectured to by priests who are Republicans or Democrats.”

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Con paz! Con paz! Just. Wow. Trey Trainor did not command the bishops who to vote for in an election. Trey Trainor did not command us to go to church in order to get lectured to by priests who are Republicans or Democrats. Trey Trainor did not command priests to lecture their congregations from the pulpit, endorsing this or that candidate. No.

  • “To be sure, priests are entitled to discuss public policy issues that the Church supports, such as laws that restrict abortion or statutes that support school choice. But priests who go beyond this are crossing the line. None of this has anything to do with money—it has to do with prudence and respect for the conscience of parishioners.”

Just. Wow. As a priest, I’m allowed by CL to discuss public policy issues. Pfft! “Discuss.” No. I’m not going to discuss anything from the pulpit. I’m not going to throw up in the air for “discussion”, say, ripping unborn children apart in the wombs of their mothers and sucking them out with a vacuum cleaner, discussing this… No. These children are made in the image and likeness of God, and I’m going to declare with Jesus, who was in the womb of His Immaculate Mother for nine months that procured abortion is intrinsically evil always and in every circumstance. This is not up for “discussion.”

Does CL really equate procured abortion with school choice, the old lies of “Common Ground” and “Seamless Garment”. Unbelievable.

CL says that priests who go beyond this step over the line. Well, CL, I’m stepping over the line. Sue me. I’m going to say that procured is intrinsically evil and that this is not up for discussion at all.

CL says that this has nothing to do with money – it has to do with prudence and respect for the conscience of parishioners. I say, that’s bull crap. The bishops get tons of Federal Money for Catholic Relief Services, which is anti-Catholic, anti-Relief, and against true Services. The Bishops get tons of Federal Money for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development which is not Catholic, but is a campaign against that which is Catholic, and is entirely against Human Development. Let’s talk the Bishops’ support for groups supporting abortion. Yes. Let’s do that, CL. Let’s talk the prudence and respect of Jesus for the consciences of the money changers in the Temple, overturning their tables of money. Just. Wow. “Prudence.” “Respect.” I’ll tell you this, Jesus took us deadly seriously. He was tortured to death for it. Jesus doesn’t want us to go to hell. He instructs us without fear. What the hell are you doing, CL? Being men of consensus?

  • “Worse is Trainor’s comments on priests and bishops. ‘When a priest takes the vow of obedience to the bishop, it’s in the area of faith and morals, but they have a higher duty to Our Lord. If the bishop is putting out something that is not right, then the priest has an obligation to the faithful to correct it because he has the higher duty to Our Lord.'”

And what Trey Trainor said is absolutely correct. I’ve taken that promise of obedience, knowing that such a promise is made within the structure of Canon Law. No bishop can legitimately command any priest to commit sin, say, by way of a sin of omission or in any other way. No priest has ever made a “vow” or promise to any bishop to commit whatever sin any bishop might command him to do. This is absurd of CL. Totally absurd. I’ll tell you this, dear CL, I would go to my death disobeying any bishop commanding me to sin. If a bishop were to command a priest to sin, it would be the very height of arrogance. But then, CL says this:

  • “Arrogance is commonplace among Washington officials, but this one is a gem. Since when is it the job of the chairman of the FEC to offer theological instructions to Roman Catholic priests? What mantle of authority does this bureaucrat have to tell priests that they should disobey their bishops?”

Yes, well, Trey Trainor happens to be a Catholic who has the right in Canon Law to bring his concerns to the pastors of the Church. And if Trey is also a government official, does that mean that he has no right to the free exercise of religion in the public square, no right to freedom of speech, no right to express his conscience on the matter? Trey is not doing this from the offices of the FEC, but rather in a journalist’s studio. I thank Trey Trainor for the instructions he has provided. And, CL, just for your instruction, I do have a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), a Licentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute, a Doctorate in Theology from the Angelicum again. I applaud the instruction of Trey Trainor. His “mantle of authority” is that… wait for it… he’s right.

  • “One would think that with all the hullaballoo about fraudulent ballots being cast, and all the chicanery about mail-in voting, that the head of the FEC would have better things to do than to tell the Catholic clergy what their responsibilities are. Trump needs to rein this guy in right away.”

I’ll tell you what, it’s fully my intention to cross the line set out by CL. I won’t discuss. I will instruct. I will defend the truth. I will defend children in the womb. I won’t command people how to vote, but I will say how candidates measure up to the absolute truth of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, who will come to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. Amen.

And, by the way, I also have better things to do than have to write such commentaries as this. I had the best day ever yesterday – to give an example – locked up in jail, giving another bible study. It was on the prodigal son. Tears of conversion flowed. I saw Jesus at work in these guys’ souls. I would much rather be doing all that than this commentary. And now it’s off to Holy Hours, Masses, Communion calls until nightfall. I love being a priest. Just don’t have the hubris of telling me how to be a priest, CL, well, you know, unless you’re right on something, like Trey Trainor.

P.S. I love what you do otherwise, CL. You do a great work for the Church. But with this attack on Trey Trainor, you’ve stepped over the line.
