Editor’s note: It wasn’t clear whether refreshments would be served to those waiting in line, in the confessional, or later, after doing penance. But, consider the possibilities!

A must read: Father Leonardo makes an impassioned plea.


….Look brothers. God wants nothing more to do with this “Church”.  He is vomiting it from His mouth, this “beautiful church of the Council,” as someone called it. The beautiful church of the Council. God wants nothing more to do with it.

And is destroying it covering it with ridicule. A church that no longer preaches the truth, does not put God in first place. A church that gives communion to remarried divorcees, which admits homosexuality and all the vices.

What will God do with such a church?

With a church which tells you, “You can do whatever you want.”

What will God do with such a church?

It is as if a cop tell the thief, “You can steal is not a crime.” To the drug dealer: “You can do it is not a crime.” To the mafioso: “You can do anything you want is not a crime.”

But a cop like that: what’s the use of him if a cop doesn’t pull out his gun to defend the innocent and fight the wicked. What’s the use of this cop?

But think brothers, really think. Will everything go back to the way it was?

No, no, we are in the midst of the end times. We are in the midst of an great sign.

God is destroying this beautiful church of the council to rebuild the true church the church of tradition, the church of Latin, the church of true spirituality, the church of holy doctrine, the church of the true magisterium and not all the nonsense that we have to listen to every morning.

The Church of Padre Pio, and of all the Saints.

Padre Pio! Padre Pio!  If Padre Pio returned to life, what would he say?

He would immediately die of heat attack again. But first he would have the time to say the two words, that he repeats in his life in the moments of his holy wrath. He was want to use these words. He would say two words. Get out of here! You butchers of the body of Christ! Get out of here! This would Padre Pio say.

So, brothers we must start again, As the spider does day after day with aristocratic detachment and perseverance. We must we must convert to tradition, to Latin, to the true spirituality to the holy doctrine, to the true magisterium, to the Saints.

This is direction of our conversion, pushing ourselves towards the divine things, throwing upwards the anchor of our salvation and of our hope and the tenacious threads of faith, and of a love that does not surrender.

Upwards towards heavenly things! not towards the earth.

Will Chicago’s activist Mayor go after the Navy’s Blue Angels for violating social distancing norms?

The Navy’s Blue Angels flew over Chicago today, to honor first responders and other essential workers, who have been in the forefront of the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Separation maintained between the aircraft is typically only 18 to 36 inches, far short of the government mandated social distancing of 72 inches. But, all the pilots were reportedly, wearing masks.

There has (yet) been no comment from Chicago’s Mayor, or from the Governor.

Your attention, please: The pestilence and worldwide shut downs are happening right in the middle of the penitential season of Lent!

Sack cloth and ashes have apparently, gone out of style!

Those Massachusetts Bishops who dispensed Catholics from the requirement of abstaining from meat, on Fridays, during Lent (except for Good Friday) might have done much better (in light of the present, dire circumstances) to encourage more stringent personal prayer, fasting and alms giving, instead.

Don’t you think?

Calling Saint Pio…


With the seeming impossibility (short of a miracle) of getting a priest to come out, for Anointing of the Sick and Last Sacraments, I’ve put in a standing request (should I be suddenly called from this world) for the priestly ministry and intercession of Saint Padre Pio, who is “a priest forever, according to the order of Melchisedech” (Hebrews 5:8) and is known for managing to get around pretty well, during even the toughest of times.


I’ve always had a great deal of respect for Saint Pio. He actually scares the Hell out of me. But, God willing, that’s precisely what I’m looking for, when it’s my time to go!

“…a real profanation, an act of pure apostasy, with those filthy and satanic images of pachamama.”

Abp. Viganò calls on Pope Francis to ‘convert’ for Pachamama idolatry in St. Peter’s

Francis’ pachamama demon idol

“The faithlessness of the Sacred Pastors is a scandal for their confreres and for many among the faithful, not only in terms of lust of thirst for power, but also — I might say especially — when they touch the integrity of the Faith, the purity of the Church’s teachings and the holiness of morals.”

“[These clerics] have even committed acts of unprecedented gravity, such as we saw with the adoration of the pachamama idol in the Vatican itself,” he said.

“Indeed, I think Our Lord has rightly become indignant at the great multitude of scandals committed by those who ought to be setting a good example, because they are Shepherds, to the flocks to whom they have been entrusted.”

Today’s question: Why did God provide plenty of evidence to ancient, superstitious people who already believed but refuses to do the same today?

Question: Why did God provide plenty of evidence to ancient, superstitious people who already believed but refuses to do the same today?

Answer: The events that took place in Poland, during the late 1970’s and 1980’s, following in the wake of Pope John Paul II’s invocation of the Holy Spirit before the assembled Polish people, resulting in the fall of the Soviet Union, the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the freeing of Eastern Europe, all without a single shot being fired in anger, are definitely in the category of which you speak.

Life sized, 3D, highly detailed “model” of Jesus’ crucified body was created using data from the Shroud of Turin

jesusmarydeath“We believe that we have the precise image of what Jesus looked like on this earth,” said Professor Giulio Fanti of the University of Padua.

Read the story. See the slide show.

What if the Shroud of Turin image is genuine and what if Jesus resembled his mother?

maryjesusshroud

A Canadian filmmaker has posted a retouched image of a Bouguereau painting of the Virgin Mary — using the face on the Shroud as a guide. The results are, I think, stunning.

His assumption that He would have born a resemblance to His only human parent. He said this about it:

“If you put the shroud on top of this drawing, you will almost match the face, like it could be” an accurate portrayal of His mother’s face.

Exquisitely beautiful – and it does rather make sense that Our Lord would physically resemble his mother!

THE STATUE: It’s now 403 years old and stands just over a foot (35 centimeters) tall, but the petite wooden statue in a small-town church in eastern Cuba is among the most venerated Catholic icons in the world and an object of pride and reverence for hundreds of thousands on the island. Protected inside a glass case, she wears a full, golden dress and her feet rest on a shimmering crescent moon.

Watch this year’s politically correct, social justice, slightly over the top, occasionally sappy Way of the Cross – from Rome

(90 minutes)

Editor’s note: This wonderful annual, highly inspirational event used to be a must-see for Holy Week. But now we have various social justice groups and specially designated “victims of circumstance” competing for attention with the Passion of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior – and that’s a bit “over the top”.

I give it one and a half stars, due to shameless popery and poorly contrived social justice connotations.
