“When You Say It, Don’t Hide”—Bl. Jacinta Marto

By |2021-01-12T15:54:46+00:00January 12th, 2021|Theology|

Usually when I bring the beginnings of repentance for my sins to prayer, I sense a deeper call to repentance. (In other words, when I begin to repent in prayer, I find I'm not repenting nearly enough.) Lately, I have been trying to bring to prayer the shame I have that I come to such radically different conclusions than almost all other priests online on the issues of 2021. Going to prayer, I expect to feel more shame for these differences of opinion I have with most of the hierarchy. But amazingly (and I realize what we sense in prayer is by no means infallible and probably shouldn't even go [...]

Scapular Enrollment: The Best Gift You Can Give Your Family

By |2020-12-24T23:25:12+00:00December 24th, 2020|Theology|

The scapular is found in the featured image above.  It is a garment dedicated to Mary and worn around the neck by Catholics through the centuries.  Those who wear it are promised two major things, known as the Sabbatine Privilege:  No hell.  "The Blessed Virgin of Mt. Carmel has promised to save those who wear the scapular from the fires of hell."—Scapular insert Reduced Purgatory.  "I, the Mother of Grace, shall descend on the Saturday after their death and whomsoever I shall find in Purgatory, I shall free, so that I may lead them to the holy mountain of life everlasting."—Mary, the Mother of God. As we Catholics believe one [...]

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Margaret Sanger and Hillary Clinton in March 2009

By |2020-11-01T05:51:53+00:00October 31st, 2020|Theology|

On Thursday, the 26th of March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, Mexico.  The above framed image (on the left) of Mary, the mother of Jesus, was miraculously imprinted by heaven upon the tilma of St. Juan Diego, a 16th century saint in Mexico.  According to a Catholic News Agency (CNA) article Hillary Clinton asked the rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Monroy (in the above picture) "Who painted it?"  He responded, "God."  Hillary Clinton seems to have laughed. (See video at end of blog post.) On Friday, the 27th of March, 2009, the very next day, Hilary Clinton then [...]

TCE 6: Uncut Version: Ex-satanist Discusses Religion and Politicians in 2020

By |2021-03-04T00:22:10+00:00October 27th, 2020|Podcasts, Sermons, Talks|

A former satanic high-wizard of the World Satanic Church converted and became a Traditional Latin Mass Catholic who now works for the end of abortion. Zachary King speaks about his conversion via the Miraculous Medal and we then walk back through Zachary's life including his youth, entrance into Satan’s World Church, induction as High Wizard, B*hemian Grove, abortions and curses for the Bild*rb*rg Group and the involvement with Gates. We end with what Zachary is doing for the end of abortion (after committing so many himself.) This is an exceptional account of the love of Divine Mercy and an unlikely recruitment into "Mary’s Army" as he describes his new vocation. [...]

Your Bullets: Miraculous Medals (Marian Mission Parish Talk)

This is a talk I gave at a parish on the Feast of the Rosary, 2020.  It's about why evangelizing strangers with Miraculous Medals may help save even your own family.  We look at everything from King St. Louis IX to the battle of Lepanto to St. Maximilian Kolbe.

In Mary is the Way and the Truth and the Life?

By |2020-04-04T14:03:18+00:00April 4th, 2020|Theology|

Many good Catholics are often hesitant to share with Protestants the Marian writings of heavily-Marian saints like St. Louis De Montfort and St. Maximilian Kolbe.  I would number myself among such Catholics, at least at initial conversations with Baptists, Pentecostals and "non-dommers."  Our Catholic giants of Marian theology write so much of "surrendering our life to Our Lady" that such vocabulary could be confusing to someone who has already surrendered his or her life to Jesus Christ (as well as Protestants and Catholics alike both should have.) Even the old Divine Office seems to ascribe too much to Mary, the Mother of God.  In the set of Psalms called None [...]

Four Virtues Extolled by Our Lady of Good Success

By |2019-11-05T14:15:24+00:00November 2nd, 2019|Theology|

The featured image above is the blood of martyrs splattered in an Easter bombing this year (2019) in Sri Lanka.  The Gospels hold that for Christ to return in glory, the Church must first suffer a great persecution and an unprecedented apostasy.  Many great saints hold that a physical persecution will also be accompanied by a spiritual persecution that will be unlike even the first years of the Church.  Whereas the early Christians were battling torture instruments, the final Christians would be battling the great apostasy, perhaps within the Church.  Did not Padre Pio himself say that there were no demons left in hell? In these California fires, you may [...]
