Sarah Says Turn and Face Your God

20110112cnsbr04171-1-800x500

I am reading Zola’s work on Lourdes. It focuses on that most extreme contradiction between our Faith and modernism, when the doctors have given up on certain hard cases, and in desperation the suffering people bring their awful pain to Our Lady at Lourdes and ask for a miracle.

A miracle. God intervening in our behalf to reverse nature and to cure us. Continue reading



Fix It, Fix It Good

You already know this.  You’ve been through it before.  Continue reading



The Hermeneutic of Hex

Father Gabrielle Amorth is an exorcist.  He has written extensively about it, and has so many fans that some of his work is out in audio form and unsigned paperbacks can go at collectors’ prices.

You too can perform an exorcism, by the way. It’s actually quite easy. Just mention the devil, and you can exorcise a whole roomful of liberals in about two minutes.   Continue reading



The Council Pow-Wow and Pro-Life

Pro-life Catholics usually take the attitude toward pro-choice Catholic politicians that they are ‘renegade Catholics,’ acting outside the teaching of the Church regarding the definition of human life. We marvel that ‘dissidents’ continue to function within Catholic circles, unchallenged, receiving communion, teaching at Catholic schools, and even living in Catholic seminaries and convents.

Why is error so persistent? Isn’t Catholicism clear? Continue reading



America Magazine: Obama is the Vatican II President

It’s official: the bizarro world of the novus ordo has declared that Barack Obama is ‘the spirit of Vatican II.’

All you sincere pro-life Catholics who passively attend and contribute to your local novus ordo parish while tolerating and even aiding through your peace sign and your donations their pro-choice politics, take heed.

All you good Catholics who believe that the government assuming the risk and giant monoopolies reaping the profits is shady, maybe fascist (or socialist, they’re all the same in the end), take heed.

Satan has almost got his unholy planetary alignment. Here it is:

Catholic magazine America ran a piece by Jesuit priest John O’Malley that proclaims Barack Obama “the Spirit of Vatican II.” You can find it right here.

If that doesn’t convince sincere novus ordo Catholics to throw themselves into the SSPX rosary crusade to be at the Holy Father’s side to clean house, what will? (You can send your rosary counts here, every month, as a comment, if you want to. I’m trying to average three rosaries per day–beat me, go ‘head!)

Father O’Malley is absolutely right. As the fifty comments proclaim, he’s nailed it! (Sorry, Lord.) Barack Obama is the spirit of Vatican II. And we need an exorcism.



Fashion and Faith

“I really love that dress,” one handsome senior citizen comments to another as they sit, sorting baby clothes at the local crisis pregnancy center. “It looks so comfortable!” Continue reading



The Merits of the Mass and How to Gain Them

By Robyn L. Schamel

Below is an interesting piece that represents traditional Catholic teaching on the ability of the mass to earn merit for the worshiper. It gives some insight as to why traditionalists are so intense about liturgy, and it also serves as a practical guide for improving one’s liturgical prayer for the glory of God and for earning more merit for self and loved ones. Thanks to Robyn Schamel for her permission to make the work available online.

Many Catholics nowadays complain that they don’t like going to Mass because they don’t get anything out of it.  Either it’s boring, or annoying, or the priest has nothing new to say, or takes too long saying it, or the choir stinks, or the music sung puts them to sleep, or the incense, if any, makes them sick and the list goes on and on.  Perhaps the real underlying problem for such people is that they don’t know what it is they should get out of the Mass, and not knowing that, they don’t know how to get it.
