Ante diem II Kal. Nov. AUC 2758/AM 7514

Today is the Vigil of All Saints or All Hallows Eve (Hallowe'en).

Ted Hewitt hasn't posted yet, but from the Martyrology, it is the Feast of St. Alphonsus Rodriguez.

It's also St Wolfgang's Day.

Tomorrow's Martyrology, for those who recite Prime:


On this day:

AD 1517, Martin Luther nails his 95 Theses to the door of the church at Wittenberg in Germany. Luther's theories and writings inaugurate Protestantism, shattering the external structure of the medieval church, and the internal unity of Europe, our Motherland. It has yet to be recovered!

AD 1955, Princess Margaret Rose calls off her plans to marry divorced Group Captain Peter Townsend. Boy, how things have changed! Now the Prince of Wales commits adultery throughout his marriage and then, after divorce and the death of his lawful wife, marries his paramour and makes her Duchess of Cornwall!

Paris-Fourth Night of Riots

Four nights, and the Minister of the Interior (who wants to be President, for God's sake!) says he wants the «immigrants» to be able to live in peace. All meteques out of France!

His Excellency Knows Not Of What He Speaks

With apologies to His Excellncy, the President of the Bishops’ Conference of Spain, Bishop Ricardo Blazquez Perez, he does not know what he's talking about. There is no such thing as a religiously neutral State. The only choice is as to which religion inspires the State. Under the Catholic, Gral. Francisco Franco, Spain was a Catholic State. Under the apostate «King» Juan-Carlos, Spain has become an atheistic, secular-humanist State. Take your pick, Your Excellency!

Ante Diem III Kal. Nov. AUC 2758/AM 7514

There is no Feast in the Traditional Roman Calendar for today, but it is the Feast of Christ the King and the Mass of the Sunday takes precedence.

The Mediæval Saints of the Day are St. Marcellus the Centurion, Martyr and Blessed Benvenuta Bojani, V.

From Ted Hewitt's Group:

Saint Marcellus:


Blessed Benvenuta:


Today's Martyrology:


Tomorrow's Martyrology, for those who recite Prime:


On this day:

AD 1270, The Seventh Crusade ends by the Treaty of Barbary. Saint Louis IX, King of France led this expedition. He died near Tunis on 25 August AD 1270, breaking the back of the Crusade. Let us invoke him daily in our battle with the jihadists!

AD 1905, The tsar of Russia issues the October Manisfesto, granting civil liberties and elections in an attempt to avert the burgeoning support for revolution. The reds were determined to make a revolution! Nothing the tsar could have done would have derailed from their attack on European Civilisation!

AD 1981, Euthanasia chief jailed over suicides. The secretary of the UK's pro-euthanasia group Exit is sentenced to two and a half years for aiding and abetting suicide. My question is, «Would this happen today?»

AD 1984, Father Jerzy Popieluszko, an outspoken supporter of Poland's banned trade union, is found dead 11 days after he was kidnapped. The red's were determined to keep pwer, but the Polish People, strengthened by their Catholic Faith, prevailed!

Vivat Christus Rex! Vive le Christ-roi!

Today being the Feast of Christ the King here are some links to provide food for thought.

First, the Encyclical Quas primas, of His Holiness, Pope Pius XI, instituting the Feast:


Second, an article by Dr Thomas A Droleskey on the Feast, pointing out how the Conciliar Church has gutted it of all the profound meaning which His Holiness gave it:


Third, the intoduction to the Feast from «The St Andrew's Daily Missal» (1953):


And last, the Traditional Collect and Office Hymns for the Feast of Christ the King. Read these and compare them to the modern Breviary («The Liturgy of the Hours»). This is solid, Catholic teaching, based on the Encyclical:


Congratulations To The Prince and Princess of the Asturias!

The Prince and Princess of the Asturias are the proud parents of a baby girl, born on All Saints' Day. If the Spanish Red Government has its way she will be her father's heir even if she later has a younger brother. If the Spanish Constitution were observed, she would instantly be heir to the Throne, since her grandfather, «King» Juan-Carlos lost his Throne when he signed the «abortion-rights» bill into law and ceased being a Catholic.

Breaking The Chains

The Social Magisterium teaches the principle that «small is beautiful». The principle of subsidiarity teaches that the smallest unit capable of a job should be allowed to do it and the Church has always encouraged small business, both privately and coöperatively owned. The Organic Consumers Association is asking consumers world-wide to boycott shopping at chain stores between November 13th and the end of this year, and while it might cost a bit more, it would promote a very valuable tenet of the Magisterium.

There is no Feast in the Traditional Roman Calendar for this day, but since it is Saturday, the Votive of Our Lady on Saturday is appropriate, and the Saturday Office of Our Lady is recited.

The Mediæval Saint of the Day is St Thomas Bellacci.

Today's Martyrology:


Tomorrow's Martyrology, for those who recite Prime:


On this day:

AD 1787, Mozart's opera Don Giovanni opens in Prague. Mozart was undoubtedly a brilliant composer, but he was a freemason and an anti-Catholic.

AD 1901, Leon Czolgosz is electrocuted for the assassination of President McKinley. Czolgosz, an anarchist, shot McKinley on September 6 during a public reception at the Temple of Music in Buffalo, N.Y. Despite early hopes of recovery, McKinley died September 14, in Buffalo. Oh, for the days of swift justice! Notice the dates. Czolgosz was executed six weeks after the President died!!

AD 1952, French forces launch Operation Lorraine against Viet Minh supply bases in Indochina, in defence of the West against the culture of death, in this case the communist Viet Minh, later the Viet Cong.

AD 1972, Palestinian guerrillas kill an airport employee and hijack a plane, carrying 27 passengers, to Cuba. They force West Germany to release 3 terrorists who were involved in the Munich Massacre. The modern jihad begins to pick up steam!

AD 1975, Gral. Francisco Franco, Caudillo of Spain by the Grace of God, turned over the office of Head of State to Infante Juan-Carlos, his designated heir. Franco had defended Spain and the West for 36 years. Juan-Carlos, within months, had violated his solemn oath and set Spain on the path to destruction.

AD 2004, European Union leaders signed the EU's first constitution. And, despite the calls of Catholics (and many protestants) the Constitution makes no reference to the Christian roots of European Civilisation!

I Seem To Have Touched A Nerve!

I haven't been called a Fascist in years and I don't think anyone has ever tacked «immoral pig» unto the epithet (see the comment on «Did Jesus Bless Homosexuality» posting).

On this day:

AD 312, Constantine the Great defeats Marcus Aurelius Valerius Maxentius at the Milvian Bridge. It was just before this battle that Constantine had his vision of the the Most Holy Cross and saw or heard «Εν Τουτω Νικα», often rendered in Latin as «In Hoc Signo Vinces» — «With this sign, you shall conquer.» This vision led to the Christianisation of the Empire and the glorious birth of our Greco-Roman Catholic civilisation and Culture!

AD 969, After a prolonged siege, the Byzantines end 300 years of Arab rule in Antioch. Unfortunately, this was only a temporary victory for our side, since the jihadists later reconquered Antioch, where St Peter had ruled as Bishop before going to Rome and where we were first called Christians and they still hold it!

AD 1628, After a fifteen-month siege, the Huguenot town of La Rochelle surrenders to royal forces. And whilst the power of the heretic protestants was weakened, it would never end. To this day, the majority of non-atheist ministers in any left-wing government in France are protestants!

AD 1958, The Roman Catholic patriarch of Venice, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, was elected pope, taking the name John XXIII. And soon convoked the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vaican!

AD 1553, Michael Servetus, who discovered the pulmonary circulation of the blood, is burned for heresy in Switzerland. While I have no problem with burning heretics since it may save their souls and will definitely save the souls of those they might lead astray, I would point out that this was an unusual case in that whilst Servetus was condemned by the Holy Office of The Inquistion, he was burned by Swiss heretics.

Why Is This Not Surprising?

The «Reverend» John Danforth is a «priest» in the Episcopalian sect, i.e. he is a layman who apes a priest, occasionally wearing a Roman collar. His idea of «moderate» Christians are dhimmis who believe that all religions are equal and we all «worship the same god!». In his attack on Christian involvement in politics, he says, «Nothing is more dangerous than religion in politics and government when it becomes divisive. I'll give you examples: Iraq. Northern Ireland. Palestine.»

I'd like to give a few examples too! Countries with Catholic or inter-confessional Christian Parties where there doesn't seem to be the problems Danforth fears: Southern Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Poland, France, Portugal, etc., etc. The problem is not Christians in politics, it's Muslims and/or extremists of any faith involved in politics. Danforth is attempting to smear both Catholics and evangelical protestants with with a broad brush, but it won't work, John. Most people are intelligent enough to see through your obfuscations.

Are we destined to remain second class Catholics for eternity? Married laymen see the light and are ordained to the priesthood, but men whose Rite accepts married men as priests are denied their ministry?

AD 1415, An English army under Henry V defeats the French at Agincourt, France. The French had out numbered Henry's troops 60,000 to 12,000 but British longbows turned the tide of the battle. Catholic Kings battling each other whilst the jihad was still advancing. May God forgive them!

AD 1760, George III of England crowned. A secret friend to Catholics, George was hated by the American heretic Colonists (See on this day, le 23 octobre) more for this than for being King. He was simply trying to restore the antient constitution of the pro-Catholic and Catholic Stuarts.

The Truth Will Out

Dan Brown, the blasphemous, vile anti-Catholic author of «The DaVinci Code», is being sued in the High Court by the two of the authors of «Holy Blood, Holy Grail», an equally vile attack on the Divine and Catholic Faith masquerading as history on the grounds that he stole all the research from them.

AD 439, Carthage, the leading Roman city in North Africa, falls to Genseric and the Vandals. Carthage was a Christian city. The Vandal conquest of North Africa destroyed the Roman infrastructure, laying the groundwork for the success of the jihad two centuries later.

AD 1531, Bavaria, despite being a Catholic region, joins the League of Schmalkalden, a Protestant group which opposes Charles V, their crowned and anointed Emperor (the last to be crowned by thePope. All succeeding Emperors were techically «emperors elect» as was provided in the oratio in the votive Mass For the Emperor in the Traditional Roman Missal). This action prevented Charles from reaching his goal of the reconquest of all protestant areas and the banning of protestantism in the Empire.

AD 1648, The signing of the Treaty of Westphalia ends the German Thirty Years' War. And with the end of the war, Charles dream is finally dead. The religion of the prince becomes the religion of his subjects regardless of their wishes and protestantism becomes entrenched in the Imperial territories.

Don't get me wrong. I'm horrified at what the Archdiocese is doing, but that doesn't give the parishioners the right to try to resurrect the heresy of Americanism which gave the Church fits in Her early days in th US.

23 octobre 2005

le 23 octobre AD 2005/AM 7514

Today is Sunday, so, of course the Mass of the Day takes precedence, which is good because there is no saint today in the Traditional Roman Calendar and Ted Hewitt's Medieval Saints lists Giovanni da Capestrano, whose Traditional Feastday is 28 March.

Today's Martyrolgy:


Tomorrow's Martyrology, for those who recite Prime:


On this day:

AC 4004, According to 17th century divine James Ussher, «Archbishop» of Armagh, and Dr. John Lightfoot of Cambridge, the world was created on this day, a Sunday, at 9 a.m. Drs Ussher and Lightfoot were heretics, their math was bad, but their hearts were in the right place! And, beginning tomorrow, I shall place the true Anno Mundi on each of these posts. FYI, AM 7514 began on 1 September 2005 according to Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Tradition.

AD 1295, the «Auld Alliance» treaty was signed by Scottish King John Balliol and Philip IV of France. It fixed the future marriage between King John's son and Philip's niece and guaranteed military assistance if either country were threatened by England. And with a little bit of luck would have kept Scotland Catholic, but John Knox and Bloody Queen Bess too care of that!

AD 1641, Rebellion in Ireland. Catholics, under Phelim O'Neil, rise against the Protestants and massacred men, women and children to the number of 40,000 (some say 100,000). Whilst I cannot condone a massacre, let us not forget the heretic Cromwell's «final solution» to the Irish problem, proposed not long after: to take the Irish to sea in ships, row them out in the ships' boats, behead them and kick their bodies overboard. Just think what he could have done with machine guns or cyanide!The British, as Catholics, and then as heretics did their best to destroy the Irish people!Up Ireland! Restore the High King! (Who by the way is a Catholic living in Portugal).

AD 1694, American colonial forces led by Sir William Phips, fail in their attempt to seize Quebec. And enforce protestantism at bayonet point on the French Catholics. Catholics in the US, I urge you to read the Declaration of Independence! One of the «crimes» of which King George was accused was «abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government....», i.e., he had tried to grant freedom of worship to the Catholics in Quebec.

AD 1983, R+I+P A truck filled with explosives, driven by a Muslim terrorist, crashes into the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. The bomb kills 237 Marines and injures 80. Almost simultaneously, a similar incident occurs at French military headquarters, where 58 die and 15 are injured. Pray for the souls of these brave defenders of the West and those of all who have died keeping us free from the Islamic hordes for the last 1364 years!

AD 2003, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, widow of the Chinese nationalist leader, died in New York at age 105. She and her husband, methodist heretics, valiantly fought the genocidal murderer Mao Tse-Tung and, at least, kept Taiwan free!

Global Warming And Hurricanes

The eco-terrorists and their liberal allies having been running around for the last few weeks shouting, «See! We told you so. You didn't listen and now we have killer hurricanes!»

Here is an article based on hard science from meteorologists suggesting that (if it is even taking place) global warming may actually mean fewer and weaker hurricanes!

Good News from Brazil

J.-J. Rousseau, whose thought is at the base of many of the problems we face today, taught that Society is a «Social Contract», but what does the individual do when the state breaks the contract? Self-defence becomes imperative, but the state in an attempt at self-preservation tries to convince the people that the answer to violence is to disarm everyone (except of course the servants of the state!). In most Western countries the scheme is well advanced under the ægis of left-wing politicians and/or activist judges. In Brazil today, however, the state did something unheard of: they gave the people a chance to vote an a proposed gun-sale ban. And by an almost 2 to 1 landslide, the voters of Brazil said they wanted to be able to buy guns to protect themselves and their loved ones. Can we hope that as the situation deteriorates further, they will use those guns to overthrow the Masonic republic that got them into this mess and restore thir lawful Emperor?

Great News From Poland!!!!

This just in from the BBC! Lech Kaczynski, the candidate of the Law and Justice Party has an «insurmountable» lead in the presidential election. As you might recall, Law and Justice is the Catholic Party and the opponent represents the free-market, social liberal Civic Platform Party.

The Party is headed by Mr Kaczynski's identical twin brother, Jaroslaw, who might conceivably be the next Prime Minister since Law and Justice is the largest party in the Sejm (parliament).

My congratulations to the Kaczynski twins and to the Polish people. May God bless you and may the Queen of Poland, Our Lady of Czestochowa, intercede for you as Poland continues on its historic Catholic path.

Doug Giles has written a wonderful column on this business. While I in no way endorse his extreme (I hope tongue in cheek) religious indifferentism, it is still a great article.

And the result? A fine officer resigns because London (like Washington) does not give its soldiers on the ground the equipment they need to defeat the jihad. Lt Col.

First of all there is no Saint's Day listed in the Traditional Universal Calendar for this date, but it is Saturday, so the Saturday Mass of Our Lady would have been appropriate this morning, and the Her Saturday Office is recited.

Tomorrow's Martyrolgy, a little late for Prime:


On this Day:

AD 741, Charles Martel of Gaul dies at Quiezy. His mayoral power is divided between his two sons, Pepin III and Carloman. Charles «The Hammer» defeated the jihadists at Tours, saving the West from inundation by the Saracen hordes. He and his House were the only orthodox Catholic rulers in the West at the time. The rest were arian heretics.

AD 1859, Spain declares war on the Moors in Morocco, thus attempting to complete the Reconquista. If other Catholc Powers had assisted, we might have reconquered all of North Africa.

It seems both Paul Mulshine and I jumped the gun on this one. According to Catholic News Service there is no evidence that Miers was a Catholic, so her immortal soul is not in danger. However, since it seems she was probably an Episcopalian (fascinating, isn't it, that with religion playing such a part in her nomination, that no one seems to know for sure?) it doesn't help Rove with his ill-advised remarks. Yes, there are many, many more Catholics than members of the Anglican sect in this country, but if he doesn't consider them Christians, I can guarantee you he doesn't think we are!!

These two articles deal with the same culture of life question in two different ways. The question is abortion/contraception and he falling birthrate in the Christian West. The first is humourous, dealing with declining beer consumption in Germany, the second, a column by Mark Steyn (him again!), dealing with abortion. The point of both is that the West is committing demographic suicide by its embrace of the culture of death.

(In Henry's defence, he lived and died an orthodox Catholic, albeit a schismatic one. The protestant revolt in England began under his son, Edward VI.)

Update to Last Post

I just received an eMail from Mr Mulshine that says the Administration is backpedalling on Miers having been a Catholic. They're now saying she was an Episcopalian, but it doesn't change Rove's point!

Bush's True View Of Catholicism

It has just come to my attention that Harriet Miers, G.W. Bush's laughable appointment to the US Supreme Court may not be laughable at all. She is an apostate Catholic, doomed to an eternity in hell unless she returns to the faith. Now why would she put her soul in such peril? Could it be that she didn't agree with some Church teachings like abortion and «gay rights»? It's instructive that she now attends an «evangelical» Methodist Church when in Texas and an Episcopal Church in Washington. Instructive, because the Methodist Church, as a denomination, is slightly to the left of Joe Stalin on social issues and the Episcopal Church is running hard to cut them off at the left.

But worse, what does this say of Bush's view of Catholics? Are we Christian or not. Karl Rove, the eminence grise of the administration has spoken of how Miers «found Christ» and was «brought to the Lord» when she «became a Christian» in 1989, so obviously she wasn't a Christian before that date according to Bush's closest advisor! Food for thought as Catholics, huh?

Read an excellent column on this by Paul Mulshine, From NJ.com:


France, The US's Oldest Ally?

Don't get me wrong. I carry France in my heart as a Second Homeland, but it is the pays reèl that I love, it is historic France, rural France, the France that still lives in the millions of French hearts that is opposed totally, root and branch to the Revolution and all its fruits.

France is often referred to as the US's «oldest ally», because of her support for the American Revolution. Indeed, until their murders, the portraits of Their Most Christian Majesties hung in both Houses of the American Congress. However, it is seldom mentioned that the new American State's first war was the «undeclared naval war» with (Revolutionary) France. Revoulutionary France has never been a willing ally of the US. Yes, the Americans saved their bacon in two world wars and what thanks do we get? The two stories below will give you some idea. The «Conservative» Jacques Chirac is cozying up to Hugo Chavez, the Communist dictator of Venezuela, an avowed enemy of the United States.

More On The Second Battle of Lexington Green

From AgapePress (US):

...The trial is set to begin tomorrow (October 20) for a Massachusetts dad who objected to his six-year-old son being subjected to pro-homosexual material at school without parental knowledge. All David Parker wanted was for the school to abide by state law and inform him when such material was to be discussed in his son's presence. But when school officials refused to do that in late April -- and Parker refused to leave the school until he was assured the law would be adhered to -- they had him arrested. The Lexington father was subsequently handcuffed and jailed overnight. In addition, the superintendent of the local school system banned Parker from all school property. An earlier hearing on Parker's plea bargain that the ban be lifted was postponed last month to allow Superintendent Paul Ash time to reconsider the ban -- but as late as last week, Ash's attorneys indicated he had no intention of changing his stance. And following the September postponement, Ash reportedly instructed all of his teachers not to notify parents when the topic of homosexual relationships was to be discussed with schoolchildren. According to the Massachusetts group Article 8 Alliance, Parker is scheduled to appear on ABC World News Tonight this evening (Wednesday, October 19). [Jody Brown]

Now, having established the way it ought to be, let's see how it really is! A father has been banned from any contact with his son's education because he wanted to know "when issues of transgenderism, homosexuality and “gay”-headed relationships were going to be discussed with my 6-year-old son, when adults within the school were involved in those discussions." Is this so bad?

Anglican plan to go forth and multiply with rival churches raises alarm

Whilst they are, of course heretics, one feels compelled to cry "vive, les Jensens!"(the Anglican "archbishop" of Sydney, Australia and the "dean" of his "cathedral"), for their principled stand for what they view as their Anglo-"Catholic" Faith.

Exposing The Dark Side Of Turkey!

You will seldom see a Muslim quoted on this blog in an approving fashion, but Salman Rushdie, of "Satanic Verses" and Ayatollah Khomeini fame, has written an excellent article about how the Turkish jihadists, despite their great desire to destroy Europe, cannot even pretend to accept European values!

R+I+P Edward Szczepanik, 21.08.15-11.10.05

Edward Szczepanik, the last prime minister of the Polish Government in Exile, kept the faith from the time of Franklin Roosevelt's handing over the Western, Catholic Polish People to the tender mercies of Joe Stalin, until Lech Walesa took over from the last President of the Polish Government in Exile, President Kazarowski, in 1990. As a man who held to his ideals through 45 years of exile he should be an example to us all in our battle to save the West!

A jihadist party in the UK is about to be banned under Red Tony's rather wet "anti-terrorism" laws. (How can one be "anti-terrorist" and still be committed to opening the borders of Europe to every jihadist who wants to come in?) However, in order to subvert the law and continue their work and recruiting, they have begun a group called "Stop Islamophobia" ! If the truly want to stop Islamophobia, stop giving Westerners anything to fear about Islam! Despite the work of the jihadists and their unrepentant sodomite allies in the war against the West, phobia means "fear" not "hatred"!

And Maybe It Will Instill Respect For Chastity!

A Catholic GP in New Zealand has notified his female papients that, for religious reasons, he will no longer prescribe contraception &/or abortifacients. The anti-life crowd is afraid it will increase teen pregancies. Who knows, but let's give life a chance, for a change!
