St. Catherine of Siena: "Eternal Father... Your Holy Spirit has given me the Desire to Love You"

  From the dialogue On Divine Providence by Saint Catherine of Siena, virgin (Cap 167, Gratiarum actio ad Trinitatem) Eternal Father, you have given me a share in your power and the wisdom that Christ claims as his own, and your Holy Spirit has given me the desire to love you.   You are my Creator, eternal Trinity, and I am your creature.   You have made of me a new creation in the blood of your Son, and I know that you are moved with love at the beauty of your creation, for you have enlightened me.   Eternal Trinity, Godhead, mystery deep as the sea, you could give me no greater gift than the gift of yourself. For you are a fire ever burning and never consumed, which itself consumes all the selfish love that fills my being.   Yes, you are a fire that takes away the coldness, illuminates the mind with its light and causes me to know your truth.   By this light, reflected as it were in a mirror, I recognize that you are the highest good, one we can neither comprehend

What do I do when I Suffer?

Prayer and Suffering Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. Christianity is unique among the religions of the world in giving a rational and adequate explanation of suffering. In fact, it goes beyond giving a strong motive for suffering, this motive being the fact that God became man in the person of Jesus Christ. Those who love Christ are to love the whole Christ, the child of Bethlehem and the naked, condemned criminal on Calvary, the Christ in the manger and on the cross. Those who love God, therefore, on Christian terms, do not or should not run away from suffering. If anything, they expect it, and for nineteen centuries they have not been disappointed. In every age and in every stage of their passage through time, the experience of Christians has been a share in the experience of Christ which includes joy and peace, of course, but also and emphatically includes suffering. Our focus in the present reflections, however, is more particular. We wish to look at two cardinal mysteries -

Pope Benedict: "What Can We Hope In?"

 December 2007 flashback from Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical is Spe Salvi (On Christian Hope): " So, what can we hope in? Not simply “eternal life,” says the Pope — but redeemed life. He sums it up in an astounding paragraph-long meditation on heaven. Eternity “is not an unending succession of days in the calendar, but something more like the supreme moment of satisfaction, in which totality embraces us and we embrace totality — this we can only attempt. It would be like plunging into the ocean of infinite love, a moment in which time — the before and after — no longer exists. We can only attempt to grasp the idea that such a moment is life in the full sense, a plunging ever anew into the vastness of being, in which we are simply overwhelmed with joy.” He quotes Jesus (John 16:22): “I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you’” (No. 12). Amen. [] Pray an Our Father now for the restorat

"Satan is the Prince [of]... This World now has a Friend within the Church in the person of Pope Francis"

"Space , therefore, for Pope Francis, is simply a euphemism for what we are in possession of now – in other words, what we traditional Catholics believe to be the fullness of God’s Immutable Revelation, Rules, Dogma, the Infallible Magisterium, and the reality that we each possess a substantial human nature and soul, requiring the same fundamental choice now as was true of the first man."   "Time is proposed by Pope Francis as being greater than Space because “becoming” is more real than God’s Supreme Being, and takes precedence over the Revealed Truths which are the fullness of that Being. It is therefore quite easy to see why, in the mind of Pope Francis, an apparent universal mercy trumps immutable dogma – why the divorced and remarried may receive Holy Communion, why we must be 'inclusive' towards practicing homosexuals (who must certainly also be admitted to Sacramental Communion if such a “mercy” holds true), and why, in fact, we must be i

Blabber Buzz News: "Secret Service Agent got Suspended... after Shoving... Biden when he Cupped the Agent’s Girlfriend’s Breasts"

"When being interviewed at the time of the happenings, the agent said Biden often roamed the VP house naked in the evening. He was “Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” he added, making reference to Harvey Weinstein, a Democratic rapist. “He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said." - Blabber Buzz News Blabber Buzz News reported that a "Secret Service agent got suspended in 2009 for a week after shoving then-Vice President Joe Biden when he cupped the agent’s girlfriend’s breasts while posing for a photo with him. The altercation escalated so fast, others had to intervene and hold back the agent who was on the verge of hitting Biden, a source who was a Secret Service agent told The Gateway Pundit": The Secret Service confirmed a report from The Gateway Pundit that involved a sexual incident between a Secret Service agent and Biden, back in 2009. A Secret Service agent got

Cardinal Stickler: "No Bishop may Forbid a Catholic Priest from saying the Tridentine Mass."

 Flashback: Cardinal Stickler Confirms Traditional Mass Never Forbidden by John Vennari Throughout the unprecedented crisis of Faith caused by post-Vatican II progressivist novelties, countless Catholics worldwide have rightly clung to the Traditional Latin Liturgy. They have always based the right to adhere to the Old Mass not only on the liturgy's sacred status of immemorial custom, but also on the Papal Bull Quo Primum of St. Pius V which solemnly proclaimed that the Latin Tridentine Mass could never be forbidden, and that all priests and faithful will always have the right to avail themselves of this liturgy. In October of 1997, Msgr. Perl from the Ecclesia Dei Commission challenged this truth. In a letter to a Catholic in America, Perl wrote  that "the legal basis for the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass today does not derive from the Bull Quo Primum , but from the documents Quattuor abhinc annos (1984) and Ecclesia Dei (1988) w hich were issued

Flashback: Enforce Canon Law, Deny Pelosi Holy Communion

 Flashback: ONTACT: Katie Walker 540.659.4942| American Life League to Bishops: Enforce Canon Law, Deny Pelosi Holy Communion Washington, DC (04 August 2008) – Judie Brown, president of American Life League, issued the following statement regarding Rep. Nancy Pelosi's frequent reception of the Holy Eucharist, as reported in the Aug. 4 issue of The Hill. "Nancy Pelosi's sacrilegious public support of abortion has resulted in untold loss of life. We call on our Catholic bishops, our shepherds, to lead us in showing reverence for the Holy Eucharist – the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity – of Jesus Christ, by enforcing Canon 915: "Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or the declaration of a penalty as well as others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to communion." Rep. Pelosi and all pro-abortion politicians, who assist in the legalized slaughter of innocent children, shou

Is McCarthy's "The Road" Hopeless or Hopeful?

I vote for hopeful. In the deepest darkness thinkable the father chooses life and goodness for his son despite the stark realness of despair as the he dies and everything around him appears to be dying. This is the dark night of the soul in our death culture. The love of the father and his choice for good made me think this is the best book I've read since Lord of the Rings. Fred The Road, Cormac McCarthy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, I just finished this book today. Was required to read it for class. And I cried ...boy is it depressing and is so hopeless. Does anybody have other views of the book that I might be missing? I'm looking for hope in it...I feel like it's wrong for something to have so little hope in God. Has anybody else read this book? holly_potter View Public Profile Find all posts by holly_potter #2 Aug 26, '08, 2:43 am Sam Malon


This article was posted at the great and holy Bishop Rene Gracida's website: ABYSSUS ABYSSUM INVOCAT / DEEP CALLS TO DEEP Why Trump Doesn’t Just’Send In the Troops’ BY:  Kurt Schlichter September 03, 2020  There are a lot of solid conservatives frustrated and appalled by the Biden Riots, and a lot of those folks wonder why Donald Trump doesn’t just make it all stop – you know, sort of like Grandpa Badfinger implicitly promises he will do if we restore the garbage liberal establishment, except with military force. “ Call up the Guard ,” right? But what folks do not understand are the practical problems with Trump using troops (sending federal law enforcement officers presents similar problems, but also a unique and big one – there just aren’t as many federal cops as there are soldiers). The devil is in the details, and the devil here makes Trump pulling the trigger on the troops in the current situation a very bad idea. We should support his strategic

COVID Creed: "I believe in Coronavirus almighty... and... the Unholy Fear of it Everlasting"

"I believe in Coronavirus almighty. The creator of lockdown on earth which was conceived of the unholy fear of it and borne of the fear of it. It suffered under a bunch of lies about it. It stupefied and was gloried. It descended into the earth. It ascended into the government thrones where they shall judge the banning of Masses and the Coronavirus dead. "I believe in Amoris Laetitia, the communion of adulterers, Francis's representation of the globalist teachings which is embodied in the climate change gospel, a one-world government, the goddess mother earth everlasting and the sacred virus death toll so that it can keep the unholy fear of it everlasting." I wrote this ecumenical creed with the hope it will help the Francis traditionalists and the Francis liberals to unite in their common belief in the Coronavirus almighty. While it is well know that Francis traditionalists like Steve Skojec and all the virus trads feel uncomfortable with the part of

Flashback: Pope Benedict Rebuked Pelosi, Told Her Catholic Legislators Obligated to Protect Life: No Pelosi/Pope photos permitted

 Flashback: By John-Henry Westen VATICAN CITY, February 18, 2009 ( - The Vatican Press Office released a note this morning detailing part of the conversation which Pope Benedict XVI had with Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Pelosi also released a statement on the meeting, which ignored the one and only crucial issue mentioned in the Vatican note. WHile Pelosi presented the meeting as a fully positive encounter, the Vatican indicated the Pope reminded her of the requirement of Catholic politicians to defend life. Also, contrary to normal protocols for such meetings with dignitaries, no photos of Pelosi with the Pope have been released. The Vatican note reads: "His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those resp

Bioengineer Weiss on COVID: "One of the Biggest Medical and Economic Blunders of All Time"

"Tesla boss Elon Musk flagged it to his 35 million Twitter followers. Media mogul Steve Forbes cheered it as “ an absolute must read .” And Fox News analyst Brit Hume is also apparently a fan " "It’s the story of “what may eventually be known as one of the biggest medical and economic blunders of all time, ” according to tech entrepreneur, military vet and bioengineer Yinon Weiss ..."  "... ‘The collective failure of every Western nation, except one [Sweden], to question groupthink will surely be studied by economists, doctors, and psychologists for decades to come.
