Building Catholic Utopias?

In Advent, we meditate on the Two Comings of Christ.  We meditate first on Christ's coming in the Incarnation and second on His glorious coming in the General Judgment.  We are reminded of the fragile and ephemeral nature of our life in exile on earth.  More now that ever, serious Catholics all over the world want to get their families to what "the better life," that heavenly fatherland.  And they are humble enough to know they need the help of other Catholic families and good clergy to arrive there. Conservatives are now building intentional communities with great foresight and circumspection to protect their families against the overreach of corrupt governments.  They realize their children have been poisoned by MMR vaccines, insecticides in food, 5G power-lines overhead, processed seed oils and bad catechesis.  Strong Christians (Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant) all rightly [...]

St. James Intercisus, Martyr of Second Chances

St. James Intercisus' martyrdom from Butler's lives of the saints, reprinted with permission of Sensus Fidelium.  St. James' feast day in the Roman Martyrology and the Eastern Rites is 27 Nov. St. James was a native of Beth-Lapeta, a royal city in Persia, and a nobleman of the first rank, and of the highest reputation in that kingdom for his birth and great qualifications, both natural and acquired, and for the extraordinary honors and marks of favor which the king conferred upon him, and which were his most dangerous temptation. For when his prince declared war against the Christian religion,† this courtier had not the courage to renounce his royal master and benefactor’s friendship; and, rather than forfeit his favor, abandoned the worship of the true God, which he before professed. His mother and wife were extremely afflicted at his fall, which [...]

The Connection Between Climate-Alarmism and Abortion

We are starting to see that the secular religion of leftists is Satanism.  Perhaps, if you were in a pub in 1965 in Chicago, you might hear a healthy debate between a conservative man and a liberal man on, say,  how much taxes should be allotted to waste-disposal or the local police force.  There were probably good arguments on both sides of the fence.  But now that the left is arguing for infanticide and genital mutilation of pre-teens, we have to ask:  What is driving such assertions found to be so irrational?  We all know that the answer to anything that irrational is this:  Demons are directly influencing human beings.  That has always been the case, but the leftists have fully unmasked themselves since 2020. I have wondered a long time the connection between climate-change and abortion.  Why is nearly [...]

“Died Suddenly” by Stew Peters

Died Suddenly is a new documentary by Stew Peters on the increase in of all-cause deaths since the release of the C-19 "vaccine."  He proposes a motive of zero-population growth for how many have "died suddenly" from the vaccine.  The cinematography is a little hokey, and it's a bit too scary for children, but it is worth watching for anyone interested in anything beyond what CNN is saying on the enormous increase of all-cause mortality from 2020 to 2022.  Died Suddenly tackles both blood-clots in adults and the astonishing 40+sigma increase in stillbirth-rate since the release of the deadly covid "vaccine."  There were over 6M views in just the first two days of its release.  Our Lord's name is taken in vain at 52:17.  You can watch it on Rumble or tap "Play" in the middle of the below embedded-movie: https://rumble.com/embed/v1to6s2/?pub=e5jg1 [...]

The Abomination of Desolation

The Gospel in the TLM today is about the end of the world.  Christ declares that "the abomination of desolation" will enter "the holy place." (Mt 24:15.)  In those days "there shall arise false Christs and false prophets" (v. 24.) Our Lord adds this unusual line: "Unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved.  But for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened." (v. 22.) Earlier in Matthew 24, Christ describes dark signs that will precede His light-filled return: "You shall hear of wars and rumours of wars." (v. 6.) And "nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places." (v. 7.)  Keep in mind that we just lived through the bloodiest century; seismologists say have been more earthquakes the past 100 years [...]

There Is Only One Abrahamic Faith

There is only Abrahamic Faith, and that is Christianity—which is Catholicism.  Remember that the Jews who reject Christ do claim, “Abraham is our father.” (John 8:39.)  But Jesus immediately denies this assertion by saying:  If you were Abraham's children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill Me, a Man Who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did.  You are doing the works your father did...You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires.—John 8:39-41, 44.  Notice again that Christ Himself in Jn 8 says that the Jews who reject Him have not Abraham as their father, but rather have the devil as their father.  Those are His words, not mine. The Holy Spirit wrote through the Apostle [...]

Love of the World

The word for "world" in Greek is cosmos or κόσμος.   Jesus and St. John the Apostle seem to say contradictory things about loving "the world."  Arguably, the most famous Bible passage of history is when Jesus says:  For God so loved the world (κόσμον) that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.—John 3:16. However, this seems difficult to reconcile with what the Holy Spirit later says through St. John in one of his letters: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.—1 John 2:15. We must ask:  Are we to love the world or not?  Most Catholics today say we are supposed to love the world since Jesus did.  But then what do they [...]
