The most recent Live Action expose showed a late term abortion mill worker talking about how to flush your born-alive, botched abortion baby down the toilet.  Now, an actual clinic doctor talks up how they won’t do anything to save a baby, and really, mom, why in the name of gaia would you want to?

This series of expose’s is exquisitely timed!  They show in brutal clarity that Gosnell is not an exception, except that his clinic might be somewhat (and only somewhat) dirtier than most (take a look around Routh Street in Dallas, that place isn’t fit to be a vet’s office).  But in terms of the routine murder of children, even those who might “accidentally” pop out of the birth canal?  Please!  It’s what they do!


You lefty abortion supporters that are feigning surprise……….really?  Do you really expect us to believe you don’t know this is what happens in most mills around the country EVERY DAY!  They murder babies for a living!  They have no compunction whatsoever whether that child is in the womb or out!  They just murder!  That’s how they get paid!  That’s all they care about!

Do we really think God will “bless” a nation that continues to allow this catastrophe?  GIVE ME A BREAK! We are under a curse, people, the curse of moloch, the same curse that befell the Jews when they started burning their babies alive in sacrifices to moloch/baal under the influence of the satanic Chanaanites!  Do you know what happened to the Jews as a result of God cursing them for these murders?  God let their nation be wiped out!  The 10 norther tribes were totally overrun and disappeared forever!  The two southern tribes were led into decades of captivity in Babylon.  They were almost broken as a people.  Do you think God will continue to stay His Hand for long?

And on a related note, a very good priest told me last night that the Hebrew Mishna, which is sort of a catalog of traditional Jewish beliefs that dates back thousands of years, stated clearly that the sins that brought on the deluge, The Flood that only Noah and his family escaped, was precipitated directly by one particular evil: the writing up of marriage contracts between men and men, and men and animals.  Where are we at today?

The only question to ask now, is not WHETHER God will severely chastise this nation, but WHEN.

But you know, I’m just an extremist, a Christo-fascist holy roller, a bible thumper, a Jesus humper.  Blow me off. I have nooooo idea what I’m talking about.  Go back to sleep, or Honey Boo Boo, or Kardasian, or whatever it is you do to pretend everything is OK.

Obama: Abortion now, abortion tomorrow, abortion forever! May 2, 2013

I had been thinking today about Obama’s recent speech to Planned Barrenhood, the first president to ever do so, confirming Obama’s standing as the most pro-abort president in the history of the United States.  Obama made a statement that sounded familiar to me.  Then I remembered what it was.  I created the little image below, to reflect what is to me, an astounding display of the similar terms and rhetoric used by those who trade in the dehumanization of others for political purposes:


Obama did not actually say “Abortion now! Abortion tomorrow!  Abortion forever!”  But he did say something remarkably similar: “Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere.  It’s not going anywhere today, it’s not going anywhere tomorrow.”  But the meaning is exactly the same as that of former Alabama Governor and presidential candidate George Wallace. I was struck by the similarity of language, the same same invocations of “divine” approbation for reprehensible acts of evil.

But those who trade in human flesh to build their political careers always love to pretend that they are on the side of goodness of light. They even pretend to be “liberating” people.  Abortionists pretend that women are “liberated” by killing their children.  Wallace pretended that states were “liberated” and defended “states rights” by subjugating a huge percentage of their people under terrible double-standards and denial of opportunity (and often violent, bloody repression). Adolf Hitler pretended he was freeing the Aryan peoples from the money-grubbing domination of the Jews. They all had or have blood on their hands.  Remarkably, the amount of blood on Obama’s hands, via abortion will likely top even that of Hitler’s.

All these mentalities reflect a fundamental rejection of God.  Pompous men arrogate to themselves the position of God, stealing God’s due rights, in order to make god-like decisions over who will live or die.  Obama arrogates to himself the right to justify the continued murder of over a million innocent souls a year in this country. And yet this man appeals to God to bless his murderous efforts!  But I think all faithful souls know just which “god” Obama is praying to, the same prince of lies that has always demanded human sacrifice in exchange for the world and all its kingdoms, if we will just fall down and worship him.

I should add that Wallace later repented of his racist views.  I pray it was an honest conversion – eventual federal enforcement of desegregation meant that he would have to get many black votes to be elected, and he may have simply calculated that he needed to sell himself as a reformed racist in order to do that.  But, he did seem pretty genuine. But this Obama……..he’s monstrously unrepentant. He’s proud of his promotion and defense of the right to murder children in (or out) of the womb.  He’s the most fervent, doctrinairre pro-abort we’ve ever seen elected president of this formerly great nation.  His moral compass is so screwed up, he is so very fallen, that he really and truly believes abortion to be a good.

Poor twisted soul. He, too, will meet his Maker, the One who judges all, perfectly, and who said: “I have set before you life and death, the
blessing and the curse. Choose life, then.” (Dt 30:19).

If you like the above, spread it around. It’s my first time creating an image of that sort, so maybe it’s worth sharing, maybe not.

St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri on foresaking the world May 2, 2013

It was once a Catholic maxim so widely accepted as to be a cliche, that we were not made for this world. That we must flee the world and its “wisdoms” and seductions, and seek the desert of the Spirit.  Alas, this all seems very long forgotten, now.  But wisdom and Truth never change, we just choose to ignore them.

From Volume II of the great Ascetical Works of the Moral Doctor, The Way of Salvation and Perfection (you must get the editions translated by Fr. Eugene Grimm, all the others are hideously abridged):

God does not allow Himself to be found in the tumult of the world; therefore, the Saints have ben wont to seek him in the most rugged 470px-Santalfonsodeserts, in the most hidden caves, in order that they might converse with God alone……..

The Lord once said to St. Teresa, “I would willingly speak to many souls, but the world makes so much noise in their hearts that they cannot hear my voice.” God does not speak to us in the midst of the rumors and affairs of the world, knowing that if he were to speak he would not be understood. The words of God are His holy inspirations, His lights and calls, through which the Saints are enlightened and inflamed with divine love; but they who do not love solitude will be unable to hear these voices of God.

God Himself says, I will lead her into solitude and speak to her heart. When God desires to raise any soul to a high degree of perfection, he inspires it to retire to some solitary place, far from the converse of creatures, and there he speaks to the ears, not of the body, but of the heart; and thus he 500px-AlphonsusLiguorienlightens and inflames it with his divine love.

We see by experience that conversing with the world, and occupying ourselves in the acquisition of earthly goods, make us forget God; but in the hour of death what do we find from all the toils and time we have spent upon things of the earth, except pains and remorse of conscience? [I pray not, but I fear it will be so!] In death we only find comfort from that little which we have done and suffered for God. Why, then, do we not separate ourselves from the world, before death separates it from us? [Great, great line!]

He shall sit solitary, and hold his peace, because he hath taken it upon himself (Lam 2:28). The solitary is not moved as he was formerly in world affairs; he will sit in repose; and he will hold his peace, and will not call for sensual delights to satisfy him, for he is lifted up above himself, and above all created things; in God he will find every good, and alll his contentment.

Who will give me the wings of a dove, that I may fly away and be at rest? (Ps 54:7) David desired to have the wings of a dove, that he might leave this earth, and not touch it even with his feet, and thus give rest to his soul.  But even while we are in this life, it is not given to us to leave this earth. We must, however, take care to love retirement, so far as it is prracticable, conversing alone with God; and thus gaining strength for avoiding those defects that arise from our being obliged to have intercourse with the world…….Liguori-reliquia

Oh, that I had ever thought upon Thee, O God of my soul, and not of the good of this world! I curse those days in which I went about seeking earthly pleasures and offended Thee, my greatest good! O that I had ever loved Thee! Oh that I had died, and not caused Thee displeasure! Miserable that I am, death draws near, while I find myself still attached to the world!  No, my Jesus, from this day I resolve to leave all, and to be wholly Thine. Thou art almighty; Thou must give me strength to be faithful to Thee. O thou Mother of God, pray to Jesus for me!

—————–End Quote——————-

Just one thought – you may have heard the line “100 years from now, it won’t matter how much time you put in at the office, or how big your income was, etc., etc, but how much your life impacted that of a child will be felt forever” or something like that?  Well…….you can’t take anything with you save your good works and sufferings.  All that money will not matter a whit when you die. The amount of time you spend on things is a reflection of how much you care about them. If you only have 1 hour a week for God, how much can you really care?

I found this photo of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, who ran Bishop Dunne High School, with Bishop Thomas Gorman sometime around the opening of that school.  This would have to be from around 1960 or so:


Check out Bishop Gorman sporting the biretta!  Way to go!

I found some more recent photos from their website:


I’m sorry, I just hate this play acting:


Gone is any discernible exterior witness of their vocation.  This is not what Vatican II called for nor intended.  But the muddled language of the Council and bad directives/approvals in the 70s and 80s led to the vast majority of female religious orders dumping their habits.  But the habit is almost like a sacrament, an exterior sign of an interior grace, or what should be an interior grace. No, not efficacious of Grace in itself, but a sign, yes.  Religious orders were gravely wounded when the habit was dropped. Of all the orders that are rapidly growing, instead of rapidly aging, they universally wear a habit, no matter if their vocation is hidden and contemplative or more public and active.

I’m sorry, the experiments with religious life in the latter part of the 20th century were a massive failure.  They caused an unprecedented collapse in religious life, especially in the more developed countries.  The impact of this collapse on the Church is beyond calculation.  It will likely take another 50 years or more just to recover from that particular part of the collapse of the Faith (to get back to where traditional religious life is practiced at about the same level as it was in the preconciliar Church).  Or, 100 years in the wilderness.

Again, thanks to MJD, especially for the awesome pic!

May 2 – Anniversary of the beatification of St. Padre Pio

Dear God, Thou hast generously blessed Thy servant, St. Pio of Pietrelcina, with the gifts of the Spirit. Thou hast marked his body with the five wounds of Christ Crucified, as a powerful witness to the saving Passion and Death of Thy Son. Endowed with the gift of discernment, St. Pio labored endlessly in the confessional for the salvation of souls. With reverence and intense devotion in the celebration of Mass, he invited countless men and women to a greater union with Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, I confidently beseech Thee to grant me the grace of (mention your intentions here). Amen.
