The beginning of Advent: "Who is Our King"?

"Morning Of Advent" by Tancau Emanuel

31 Meditations for Advent and Christmas

“The King Who is to come; O come let us adore Him.”


Our King is Jesus Christ, God and Man. The name Jesus indicates His Divine nature. For Jesus means Saviour (“Thou shalt call His name Jesus; for He shall save His people from their sins”– Matt. i. 21). Now from our sins none can save us but One who is Himself God; none else can pay the debt due for man’s sin. Hence He who is our King is also our Saviour; and He who is our Saviour must be God, the God of infinite majesty, infinite power, and infinite knowledge. This is why before the name of Jesus every knee must bow; because the name of Jesus is the name of God. If men glory in having a noble King, how much more ought we to rejoice in having as our King the Omnipotent God and Lord of Heaven and earth.

Reverse Papolatry: how some Traditionalists have focused on the Pope rather than Our Lord

 "Whoever committeth sin, is the slave of sin" John 8:34

Pope Francis needs our prayers, not our hate, anger, rage. We have had weak, bad even evil popes before. The Church survived. Why? Because Christ is the Head of the Church, not a man. Christ has triumphed.

The Providence of God saw to enshrine in the First Vatican Council that the Supreme Pontiff actually has very little powers. He is not some arbitrary figure who may make up doctrine on a whim. To lament and rage over utterances of the Holy Father gives to him far, far more power than he ever had: it is a form of reverse papolatry. Eventually, the only sick logic of this is sedevacantism, or unbelief. The Pope is a liberal, but is infallible; ergo I must be a liberal. Or, the Pope is liberal, but is infallible, ergo he is not Pope. This is madness.

We do not know if the selection of Haring for praise was the Pope's or his advisors. In a sense, it does not matter. The men whom Pope Francis has surrounded himself are not giving good advise, nor have been giving good advise for some time. 

The proper reaction from Catholics to the confusion coming from Rome should not be anger, hatred, vulgarity, moral relativism etc. When Catholics calling themselves "traditional" do not understand that sin is sin, that it is black and white, then we have a serious problem: it is called moral relativism and it comes from being imbued with the poison of liberalism.

These are all signs of the Enemy and not the Holy Spirit.
There are a few voices of soundness, of calm who are speaking up. Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider are two exemplary voices in the hierarchy, but not the only ones. Notwithstanding, when Cardinal Burke did not commit episcopal "suicide" by denouncing the Pope within a few hours of the publication of Amoris Laetitia (and hence effectively removing himself from defending the truth), his voice is a voice of Catholic clarity proclaiming the truth in charity amongst the din of hatred.

When a mere man, the Pope in Rome, has become the centre of attention, the focus of hate, - not prayer - we have a serious problem. When Our Lord, who should be our focus, is a mere afterthought, we have an even bigger problem.

The Pope in Rome needs out prayers and sacrifices. We need to increase our prayers, and decrease our "noise". 

"It is easy to see what effects proceed from corrupt nature; they are such things as...feuds, quarrels, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, dissensions, factions, spite... I warn you, as I have warned you before, that those who live in such a way will not inherit God’s kingdom. Whereas the spirit yields a harvest of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, forbearance, gentleness, faith, courtesy, temperateness, purity".   
Galatians, 5, 19-23

How "Traditionalists" and "Modernists" join hands as the Servants of Satan

Our Lord and His Church are under demonic attack: such is the power of Satanism that he uses both "left" and "right" in undermining and destroying the Church. 

The devil does not care how he gets a soul but that he gets one. 

There is much laughter in hell when the "Traditionalist" and "Modernist" have both been swung off in the service of Satan.  

Archbishop Fulton Sheen was right when he once stated that the reason why so few people converted was because they had not meant an authentic Christian.
I ask: are these Tweets by authentic Christians?

(my apologies to the ladies who read this blog, for the monstrous expletive but the truth must be known).

Going back to the 50s will not "make the Church great again"

Every so often Fiftiesism breaks out amongst Catholics who hanker for the "good old days" of Pius XII and the comfortable lives - so they think in their fantasy - of the Catholic Church prior to the Council. but the Council blew away the rot, the decadence, the hypocrisy, the liberalism, the Americanism  that had invaded the Catholic Church for decades prior to the 1960s. 

Fifties Catholicism was a Church far too rich, far too comfortable, far too conformable to the secular world that was rapidly sliding into apostasy.

We do not need to "make the Church great again" or some other shallow political slogan, for the Church was always great, from the moment She was born from Christ's side on Mount Calvary. What we need is to prayer, to act with humility, to never be tempted that we will save the Church. "Place not your trust in Princes..." 

Just as the Dominicans, the Jesuits, the Franciscans and the other once great Orders have crashed off to the side, seduced by liberalism, so too we see much of the Fraternity of St. Peter's and the Society of St. Pius X slowing crashing off to the side with Manicheanism and prideful temptations that they will be the special "elite" of God to save the Church. 

Pride always comes before the fall. Beware of pride, dear readers. God has never blessed or favoured the proud, but always brought them down.

Is it not a marvel that outside of the North American Martyrs, and a number of holy nuns, the only Canadian elevated to the Altars was the humble, semi-illiterate Brother Andre of Montreal? Let this extraordinary saint be a warning for our eminently "educated" churchmen. 

We need to "watch and pray", remain humble and follow the example of saints like Philip Neri or Therese of Lisieux.

I reflected a while ago on Fifties Catholicism, and stand by every word - even more so today, than when I wrote it.

BREAKING: Antonio Spadaro S.J., brings the hammer down on the Four Cardinals ~ terrorizing bishops and priests into silence

Antonio Spadaro. S.J., the man who is running this Papacy, is striking hammer blows at the Four Cardinals and any other potential opponents of Adultery with a series of vicious Tweets. 

The aggression of Spadaro is a way of warning any other churchmen who might wish to express opposition to giving Holy Communion to Adulterers to back off.

By bringing down the hammer on the Four, Spadaro is effectively terrorizing timid churchmen into silence. 

These Tweets are shots across the bow of any bishop who would dare speak up.

The Dubia of the Four Cardinals changes nothing: Francis and Spadaro are in total control

Pray for Christ's Church to His Holy Mother 
With regards to the Dubia sent by four Cardinals to the Pope, a few reflections. 

Firstly, the Pope is, canonically speaking, judged by no one, and the sending of the Dubia will not disturb him, obstruct him or offset him and his handlers in the least. 

Secondly, if there is a response, it will be in the manner of the dismissal of the Abbe de Nantes - that is, the Pope will rule the Dubia out of order. 

The Pope and his handlers - namely his Ghost Writer and the de facto "pope", Antonio Spadaro S.J., will not feel incommoded in the least. To the contrary, even as I write, the "official" Catholic media is already speaking of "semi-retired" Cardinals etc.  

Certainly, for these four Cardinals, they have done a service towards the Truth and those striving to live a Catholic life. May God reward them. However, we should not be deluded. We have received the Pope we deserve. Simply, Catholics could not handle a truly Catholic Pope. With the vast majority of Catholics off fornicating, self-abusing, engaging in unnatural acts within Holy Matrimony, such as oral and anal sodomy (encouraged and excused by the Theology of the Body crowd), unnatural sexual acts between persons of the same sex etc., they are simply not ready for a Catholic Pope. The truth is just too painful at this present time in history.

Do we honestly think God would send the Church another Pius X? Why? No one would obey him. When Paul VI began to Act in a Catholic manner: Humanae Vitae and the Credo, he was mocked, denigrated and ignored. 

In conclusion, we must during this dark time realize that Christ is in absolute and total control of His Church. He is punishing Her presently for grave infidelity; for committing adultery with the world, the flesh and the devil.

Perhaps it is time for Catholics to increase their prayer life, such as making an effort to pray the Rosary every day, make a Holy Hour weekly etc.

USCCB blackmailed by the Democrat Party into silence over Abortion and other evils?

Every picture tells a story. In this case, every screen shot. With 48 hours to go before the US Presidential Election, a cursory glance at the web page of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sees them relentlessly promoting the totally discredited and un-Catholic "Catholic Campaign for Human Development". 

This is the election "issue" for these men. 

There is no mention of abortion. No mention of even partial-birth abortion. No mention of the great moral issues: the destruction of marriage, the promotion of homosexuality, pornography, contraception, divorce, fornication, unnatural vice, paganism, and the occult. Etc., etc. 

With one of the two front running candidates backing with incredible aggression, the satanic practice of Partial Birth Abortion: these "evil and wicked men" (c.f. 2 Thess 3:2) are silent. 

Why are they silent?

We have to start asking serious questions where are they coming from. 

Are some of them homosexuals? 

Are some Freemasons? 

Are some occultists?

Are some even Luciferian Satanists? 

Catholics in the United States need to know just what and what these men are. 

But from their behaviour over the past few weeks one can at least draw this conclusion for the vast majority of them: 

These men are cowards.

These men have sold out for filthy lucre. 

These men do not believe, for by "their works ye shall know them". 

These men are betrayers of Jesus Christ and His Church. 

These men are the successors of Judas Iscariot.

Bonfire Night and the Burning of the Pope

A picture speaks a thousand words. In Lewes, England, a strange event takes place every November 5th in which a mob celebrate the gruesome torture and death of Guy Fawkes. Sadly, the Pope is also burnt in effigy.... the event is even enough to cause an Ulster Protestant to blush. 


For me, this is particularly sad, as I have been to Lewes, and know the area quite well. Yet, under the cover of an idyllic town, in the hearts of some, lies a burning hatred of Christ and his Church. 

Yet, let this not end in hate for hatred, but prayers for the conversion of these deluded souls, to the faith of their forefathers. The English and Welsh Martyrs did not die in vain.

As Freyr commented: 

"First you create a straw man and then you tear it down in the interest of protecting the state or the people or some such. This allows you to focus the peoples' hate on some external enemy and away from your own activities. It is especially ominous when such hate becomes part of the cultural heritage of a community".

The hellish flames of those who despise Christ's Vicar

Such similar signs existed in Germany: No Jews"

Fanatics marching and proclaiming their hatred
