GENERAL P FRANCIS IS FAITH UNFAITHFUL
Dozens go up in Rome. I’d admire the following in bold black letters:
GENERAL P FRANCIS IS FAITH UNFAITHFUL
Human or divine geometry?
Is the Latin Mass a masculine thing? Yes. Are there soldierly movements? Yes. Is there military precision? Yes. Are there memorized commands and answers? Yes. But women admire that. How the Military Boosts Working Memory for Its Soldiers -
Watch, then look away and listen. No matter who is speaking,
when commanding or pleading, they all sound like orators.

I am trolling the internet now because I am confined to home by a lousy seasonal cold. Like father, I started trolling and also getting onto social media back in early 2020 because we all were so isolated. The three C’s do that: colds, controls, and closures; and the 13th storm of the season is pounding us.
Here is the letter removing Father Curran, now 88, from teaching at a Catholic institution. He is your typical modernist without a collar. He did not attend the Land O’Lakes conference, but he was supported by someone who did: Paul Hallinan, Archbp. of Atlanta, GA. https://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19860725_carlo-curran_en.html
oath against modernism
Issued September 1, 1910, by Pope St. Pius X, required of all clergy, pastors, confessors, preachers, religious superiors, and professors in philosophical-theological seminaries of the Catholic Church from 1910 until 1967.
Land O’Lakes Statement 1967
University of Notre Dame Wisconsin property
The Catholic University: A True University with Distinctive Characteristics
Statement on the Nature of the Contemporary Catholic University
The Catholic University today must be a university in the full modern sense of
the word, with a strong commitment to and concern for academic excellence. To
perform its teaching and research functions effectively the Catholic university
must have a true autonomy and academic freedom in the face of authority of
whatever kind, lay or clerical, external to the academic community itself. To
say this is simply to assert that institutional autonomy and academic freedom
are essential conditions of life and growth and indeed of survival for Catholic
universities as for all universities.
Land O’Lakes Signatories
Father Hesburgh of the University of Notre Dame led the group.
“… only 10 universities were represented, including six from the U.S.: Boston College, Catholic University of America, Fordham, Georgetown, Notre Dame, and Saint Louis. (The rector of the Catholic University of America was alone in publicly criticizing the resulting statement.) Of the 26 signers, seven were from Notre Dame and its sponsoring Holy Cross Fathers, and ten were Jesuits or leaders of Jesuit institutions.
“Some of the signers were especially notable: Archbishop Paul Hallinan of Atlanta, Father Theodore McCarrick (then president of the Pontifical University of Puerto Rico and later Archbishop of Washington) and Father Vincent O’Keefe, S.J. (later Vicar General of the Society of Jesus).
“Also intriguing is the signature by John Cogley, a leftist scholar representing the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. It’s not clear what he was doing at Land O’ Lakes, except that he was a celebrated intellectual in certain circles. He had been religion editor of the New York Times and a principal writer of John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech advocating the separation of church and state. He later dissented from Humanae Vitae and became an Episcopalian….”
I was a student at a Jesuit high school in San Francisco when these events happened: 1967 Land O’Lakes Statement issued; 1967 Interim Mass attended; 1969 New Mass witnessed; 1969 religious vocation received. I am grateful that I lived long enough to find out the truth of what happened and that God Himself spared me the ordeal of religious life with modernists.
Which do you accept? The words of a sainted pope or modernist teachers? The choice is yours. I have made mine.

pelosi pricy poo
On November 17, 2021, by a vote of 222-8, without mentioning Biden, Pelosi, or any other politician by name, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops meeting in Baltimore said, “It is the special responsibility of the diocesan bishop to work to remedy situations that involve public actions at variance with the visible communion of the Church and the moral law.”
Looks like Pelosi commits a mortal sin every time she receives communion on account of her ongoing support of abortion when her archbishop told her NO. “Did mommy and daddy give you everything you wanted? That would explain why you felt entitled to a new mouth and hoped the disguise would fool us.” It’s old news, but she regurgitated it.
The Jesuit Georgetown University people and Pelosi can be summed up this way: “Who flatters, is of all mankind the lowest. Save him who courts the flattery.” -Hannah More

“WASHINGTON – On Monday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued proposed revisions to its regulations implementing Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, which would force health care workers to perform gender transition procedures, require health insurance issuers to cover them, and entertain a mandate to perform elective abortions.”
“... They mandate health care workers to perform life-altering surgeries to remove perfectly healthy body parts … This is a violation of religious freedom and bad medicine.”
“The proposed regulations announce that HHS is also considering whether to force health care workers to perform abortions against their will or lose their jobs. We call on HHS to explicitly disavow any such intent.”
Note 1: There are more than 600 Catholic long-term care facilities and hospitals in the US, amounting to about 16% of short-term acute care. Sixty-five percent of 18,000 clinics, 16,000 homes for the elderly and special needs, and 5,500 hospitals are in developing countries.
Note 2: see the entry reproducing Paragraphs 2245 and 2246 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (3/22/2023) to understand the convergence of Church and politics.
kolbe on ecumenism
Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe, OFM Conv., Auschwitz prisoner number 16670, was a Polish Catholic priest who had four brothers.
At the end of July 1941, a prisoner had escaped from Auschwitz. Deputy Camp Commander Karl Fritzsch picked 10 men to be starved to death in an underground bunker to deter further escape attempts.
When one of the selected men, Franciszek Gajowniczek, cried out, “My wife! My children!” Kolbe volunteered to take his place.
After being starved and deprived of water for two weeks, only Kolbe and three others remained alive. The guards wanted the bunker emptied, so they gave the four remaining prisoners lethal injections of carbolic acid.

This is who, not what, we lost after Vatican II, nearly as bad as WW II.
Virtue, bravery, she makes me weep.
The report, dated February 2, 2021, mentions Amazon, NBC, and the FBI.
“The SPLC [Southern Poverty Law Center] has been forced to retract several of its hate group designations. In 2018, it apologized and paid Maajid Nawaz a $3.375 million settlement for including him in its ‘Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.’ The SPLC retracted the entire field guide, which also notoriously included respected human rights advocate and scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali.”
I had a field guide to birds as a youngster, and somewhere in my house is one on trees in the Sierras.
From my experience, children are not the slightest bit interested in language manipulation by adults or interventions by the same to soothe their own babyish sensitivities. Children would rather be playing.
“Those who disagreed were laughed at, put under pressure, labeled as psychopaths, placed in the vicinity of right-wing extremists, accused of promoting acts of violence against minorities, and indirectly even of being responsible for suicides.” Bullying.
When a nine-year-old boy I was playing with on the street scratched my nine-year-old face, I scratched him back. He wasn’t going to get away with it. Of course, 10 minutes later my mother smacked me for doing it.

fssp sspx icksp seminaries
Father McWhirter, FSSP, explained to me that only 20 men or so are accepted to the FSSP’s American seminary each year because there are not enough qualified instructors and because a certain percentage of instructors must be priests. Frannie has restricted the ordination of traditional parish priests.
There are 13 million Latin Mass goers in the world. So, all the supporters of the FSSP, SSPX, and ICKSP should join hands and fund the education of more traditional priests for advanced degrees who are then qualified to teach and then the seminaries could accept more men and defeat modernism. What say you?
Put aside trivial disagreements and fight the enemy. That is what Trump did and why he was so successful and so hated. If a man is loved, he has ipso facto lost.

Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Church, because of her commission and competence, is not to be confused in any way with the political community. She is both the sign and the safeguard of the transcendent character of the human person. “The Church respects and encourages the political freedom and responsibility of the citizen.”
It is a part of the Church’s mission “to pass moral judgments even in matters related to politics, whenever the fundamental rights of man or the salvation of souls requires it. The means, the only means, she may use are those which are in accord with the Gospel and the welfare of all men according to the diversity of times and circumstances.”
The FSSP was kicked out of Guadalajara in September 2021. I missed the news. In the Faith Category is a post titled, “Mexico FSSP”, which is a 2012 film made from inside the Metropolitan Tabernacle of Guadalajara during a Latin Mass. The post is 3/5/2023. Say good-bye Guadalajara and hello Day of the Dead.
What is funny about all my posts on the Latin Mass and the Latin language is that we goers and doers are about 1%, but 1% of 1.3 billion people is 13 million, making us larger than NYC (9 million). Still most Catholics don’t give a damn what happens to the Latin Mass or us. Their world is walled, and signs read “Proscribed.”
That’s not a plea for mercy, not from dirty hands.
agatha christie indult
You need to know: Pope Paul VI granted an indult in 1971 for use of the Latin Mass in England and Wales. Indult is a term from Catholic canon law referring to a permission to do something that would otherwise be forbidden. Above are the signers of a letter asking that the Latin Mass be allowed. Lies need to be exposed. The Latin Mass was never forbidden, but we were led to believe so. Presumably, the signers did not know either. Ironically, it was Bugnini, the man who created the New Mass, who sent the letter to Cardinal Heenan communicating the indult. With two exceptions, Badano (b. 1971) and Acutis (b. 1991), every declared saint attended the Latin Mass.
The text of the appeal, dated July 6, 1971, follows:
One of the axioms of contemporary publicity, religious as well as secular, is that modern man in general, and intellectuals in particular, have become intolerant of all forms of tradition and are anxious to suppress them and put something else in their place.
But, like many other affirmations of our publicity machines, this axiom is false. Today, as in times gone by, educated people are in the vanguard where recognition of the value of tradition is concerned, and are the first to raise the alarm when it is threatened. [boldface added by me]
If some senseless decree were to order the total or partial destruction of basilicas or cathedrals, then obviously it would be the educated - whatever their personal beliefs - who would rise up in horror to oppose such a possibility.
Now the fact is that basilicas and cathedrals were built so as to celebrate a rite which, until a few months ago, constituted a living tradition. We are referring to the Roman Catholic Mass. Yet, according to the latest information in Rome, there is a plan to obliterate that Mass by the end of the current year.
We are not at this moment considering the religious or spiritual experience of millions of individuals. The rite in question, in its magnificent Latin text, has also inspired a host of priceless achievements in the arts - not only mystical works, but works by poets, philosophers, musicians, architects, painters and sculptors in all countries and epochs. Thus, it belongs to universal culture as well as to churchmen and formal Christians.
In the materialistic and technocratic civilisation that is increasingly threatening the life of mind and spirit in its original creative expression - the word - it seems particularly inhuman to deprive man of word-forms in one of their most grandiose manifestations.
The signatories of this appeal, which is entirely ecumenical and non-political, have been drawn from every branch of modern culture in Europe and elsewhere. They wish to call to the attention of the Holy See, the appalling responsibility it would incur in the history of the human spirit were it to refuse to allow the Traditional Mass to survive, even though this survival took place side by side with other liturgical forms.

Fr. Gordon, FSSP, says low Mass with one server in one hour, my follow-up to the 3/20/2023 San Antonio School post on Latin responses for the server. See if you can discern the disgusting portmanteau, “hocus-pocus”, concocted by anti-Catholics long ago. Gordon gives insight into the glorified body.
The Mass is live-streamed, which is why only two partake and why in August 2020 I started looking for a church that was open. Never again will a church be closed by an arbitrary rule issued by an arbitrary government. Latin could be oso subversive. Let us learn it and be conversant.
Lucky for us now, Google live caption cannot translate Latin.

Incredulous it is that elementary and middle schools cannot stick to reading, writing, math, social studies, a little basic science, music, and art, and a bit of PE. Parents are the primary educators, and when it comes to reading, dear teachers, stay with unaltered classics, regardless of words that offend ears present.
Stop underestimating children! We have 104 altar boys, ages 7-18, who learn all the Latin responses, which are considerable, and all the movements during Mass, by heart. Here are the responses, labeled R. With enough repetition, they understand what they are saying and doing.
Skip ahead to 13 minutes. To comprehend the “performance” on March 9, 2023, you need look at it for mere minutes. By posting on YouTube they have unwittingly given us proof of how low Germany has sunk. Batty Bätzing. Faltering Francis. These people are Plutonian. You would get more enjoyment out of watching Planet of the Apes. If you prefer, listen to a reading of Dashiell Hammett’s gritty detective story in gritty San Francisco. Recommended.
We might not own certain “possessions” in the future.
They might reside in “the cloud.”
Your computer has a hard drive, and you store pictures, music, movies, and documents there. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it.
All that is changing.
Apple, Microsoft, and Google are finishing up their latest “cloud services.”
When you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system.
Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet.
If you click an icon or save, it will open something or save something to the cloud.

The date is June 5, 2033. On that Sunday, the Catholic Church will be 2,000 years old. Left is a fresco of the Holy Ghost in the Karlskirche, Viennese Church of St. Charles, the last great work of the Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Completed in 1739, it was built when Emperor Charles VI made a vow during a plague. The church is dedicated to the Habsburg emperor’s namesake, St. Karl Borromäus (St. Charles Borromeo), whose life and works are depicted on the two giant columns next to the entrance portal. The lavish dome frescoes are by Johannes Michael Rottmayr and cover 1,250 m². Multiply the area value by 10.764, and the result is approximately 13,455 square feet.
“Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that one [Silicon Valley Bank] director, venture capitalist Kate Mitchell, has donated tens of thousands of dollars toward groups boosting Democrats, including those supporting Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.
“Mitchell made news for sharing how she prayed at a Shinto shrine in Kyoto, Japan, over Thanksgiving after Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. ‘I prayed for me and us to get beyond our grieving and shock and to figure out how to engage and listen to what happened and come back together,’ she said, according to CNBC.”
We can only pray that God finds this woman. I respect other religions, but she won’t find Him there. Born in 1962, she is old enough to remember the hippies and all their gurus. Maybe she needs a refresher course in history.
“Shinto gods” are called kami. They are sacred spirits which take the form of things and concepts important to life, such as wind, rain, mountains, trees, rivers, and fertility. Humans become kami after they die and are revered by their families as ancestral kami.
Donations and investments:
Update, pre-dating my post: The president calls for action against directors:
From the cross Our Lord entrusted to His mother that which was most dear to His Sacred Heart, the priesthood. He said, “Woman, behold thy Son. Behold thy mother,” He then said to St. John. Mary was commissioned to do for John and the other apostles what she had always done for her Son, to serve Christ in His priests.
The sisters of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) find their service under Mary’s title, Our Lady of Compassion, as priests renew the Holy Sacrifice of the Cross on the altar. They pray for the priesthood and serve Christ in His priests. Archbishop Lefebvre and his own sister co-founded the SSPX sisters.
In addition to the virus, fun and laughter is what brought me to the Latin Mass. Have you ever noticed how leftists and modernists have no sense of humor? We are serious while in church and during prayer time. Outside, we screw around and up a lot. Francis says we have dour faces.
