The Hour of Civil Disobedience

 

Hear, O kings, and understand;
learn, you magistrates of the earth’s expanse!
Hearken, you who are in power over the multitude
and lord it over throngs of peoples!
Because authority was given you by the Lord
and sovereignty by the Most High,
who shall probe your works and scrutinize your counsels.
Because, though you were ministers of his kingdom,
you judged not rightly,

and did not keep the law,
nor walk according to the will of God,
Terribly and swiftly shall he come against you,
because judgment is stern for the exalted–
For the lowly may be pardoned out of mercy…

IN several countries around the world, Remembrance Day or Veterans’ Day, on or near November 11th, marks a somber day of reflection and gratitude for the sacrifice of millions of soldiers who gave their lives fighting for freedom. But this year, the ceremonies will ring hollow for those who have watched their freedoms evaporate in front of them.Continue reading

Simple Obedience

 

Fear the LORD, your God,
and keep, throughout the days of your lives,
all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you,
and thus have long life.
Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them,
that you may grow and prosper the more,
in keeping with the promise of the LORD, the God of your fathers,
to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.

IMAGINE if you were invited to meet your favorite performer or perhaps a head of state. You would likely wear something nice, fix your hair just right and be on your most courteous behavior.Continue reading

There is Only One Barque

 

…as the Church’s one and only indivisible magisterium,
the pope and the bishops in union with him,
carry
 the gravest responsibility that no ambiguous sign
or unclear teaching comes from them,
confusing the faithful or lulling them
into a false sense of security. 
—Cardinal Gerhard Müller,

former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
First ThingsApril 20th, 2018

It is not a question of being ‘pro-’ Pope Francis or ‘contra-’ Pope Francis.
It is a question of defending the Catholic faith,
and that means defending the Office of Peter
to which the Pope has succeeded. 
—Cardinal Raymond Burke, The Catholic World Report,
January 22, 2018

 

BEFORE he passed away, almost a year ago to the day at the very start of the pandemic, the great preacher Rev. John Hampsch, C.M.F. (c. 1925-2020) wrote me a letter of encouragement. In it, he included an urgent message for all my readers:Continue reading

It’s Not Coming – It’s Here

 

YESTERDAY, I walked into a bottle depot with a mask not covering my nose.[1]Read how the overwhelming data shows that masks not only don’t work, but may actually make a new COVID infection far worse, and how masks are likely spreading the contagion faster: Unmasking the Facts What ensued was disturbing: the militant women… the way I was treated like a walking bio-hazard… they refused to do business and threatened to call the police, even though I offered to stand outside and wait until they were done.

The Mystery of the Kingdom of God

 

What is the Kingdom of God like?
To what can I compare it?
It is like a mustard seed that a man took
and planted in the garden.
When it was fully grown, it became a large bush
and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.

(Today’s Gospel)

 

EVERY day, we pray the words: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Jesus would not have taught us to pray as such unless we were to expect the Kingdom yet to come. At the same time, the first words of Our Lord in His ministry were:Continue reading

It’s Happening Again

 

I HAVE published a few meditations at my sister site (Countdown to the Kingdom). Before I list these… may I just say thank you to everyone who has written notes of encouragement, offered prayers, Masses, and contributed to the “war effort” here. I am so grateful. You have been a strength to me at this time. I am so sorry that I cannot write everyone back, but I read everything and am praying for all of you.Continue reading

Grave Warnings – Part III

 

Science can contribute greatly to making the world and mankind more human.
Yet it can also destroy mankind and the world
unless it is steered by forces that lie outside it… 
 

—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Spe Salvi, n. 25-26

 

IN March 2021, I began a series called Grave Warnings from scientists around the world regarding the mass vaccination of the planet with an experimental gene therapy.[1]“Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA.” —Moderna’s Registration Statement, pg. 19, sec.gov Among the warnings about the actual injections themselves, stood one in particular from Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, PhD, DVM.

When Face to Face With Evil

 

ONE of my translators forwarded this letter to me:

For too long the Church has been destroying itself by refusing messages from heaven and not helping those who call heaven for help. God has been silent too long, he proves that he is weak because he allows evil to act. I don’t understand his will, nor his love, nor the fact that he lets evil spread. Yet he created SATAN and did not destroy him when he revolted, reducing him to ashes. I do not have more confidence in Jesus who supposedly is stronger than the Devil. It could just take one word and one gesture and the world would be saved! I had dreams, hopes, projects, but now I only have one desire when comes the end of the day: to close my eyes definitively!

Where is this God? is he deaf? is he blind? Does he care about people who are suffering?…. 

You ask God for Health, he gives you sickness, suffering and death.
You ask for a job you have unemployment and suicide
You ask for children you have infertility.
You ask for holy priests, you have freemasons.

You ask for joy and happiness, you have pain, sorrow, persecution, misfortune.
You ask for Heaven you have Hell.

He has always had his preferences — like Abel to Cain, Isaac to Ishmael, Jacob to Esau, the wicked to the righteous. It’s sad, but we have to face the facts SATAN IS STRONGER THAN ALL THE SAINTS AND ANGELS COMBINED! So if God exists, let him prove it to me, I am looking forward to converse with him if that can convert me. I didn’t ask to be born.
