That was 2020. Now, increase your numbers to be ready for the difficult future ahead. Our 104 altar boys in Sacramento would fill your monastic stalls in Lyon, FR.
“As chaplain to Polish artists in exile, in October 1849 he heard the last confession of Frédéric Chopin and gave him the last rites. He was present when the composer breathed his last….” Chopin died October 17, Paris.
Back in 1838, Chopin made a funny comment about his poor health: “Three doctors have visited me…The first said I was dead; the second said I was dying; and the third said I was about to die.”
One day a purified Catholic Church will win England back, one day.
“We kneel to no one.” (to no civil authority) The English today don’t even know their own history. Saint Alfred the Great, c. 848-899, is an ancestor of Elizabeth II. She is the last one worth mentioning.
We know the history. We inherited it. We own it and will set things aright. Laura commented; she understands that a military man is needed in the current circumstances. One will emerge.
A fictional story is in the beginning stages, and it takes time to develop a hero, but he will be an American military man, the strongman Francis fears most. Francis attacks American trads all the time.
That niggling pope will be sent a copy of the story. We might be only 11-13 million strong now, but wait for those numbers to swell.
Read about abuser Marco Rupnik and Pope Francis.
His pontificate is over. I wish I could see Francis thrown out, but that won’t happen. The Church is weak now.
The internet gives us something good: corruption is exposed, many world leaders past and present are proven frauds, Biden, Trudeau, and Xi Jinping, to name a few.
No longer are we captives of deception.
On a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest, how would I rate the friendliness of Catholics? Close to zero. I try my best to be different from them, which does not require much, because I am different. Why stay? You will never get an answer to that question because I never ask it.
The Catholic hierarchy and vast numbers of Catholics have been overtaken by modern notions of sexuality and sexual identity. This runs completely counter to the Catholic understanding of vocation. There are three: married life, religious life, and single life. Everything else is subservient to the three vocations. You fit into one of those callings, and everything else is irrelevant.
Over time, and this took time, I dropped Freud and psychology as a helpful way to understand people. All of it caused us to become obsessed with sex. The law of attraction is always at play. God gave us that. However, unless you are in love with someone, you need to let it die. I do, even though most people think I don’t. Their misconceptions about me cause me to withdraw from society regularly.
This comes about because some people are narcissists and think too highly of themselves.
The priest says Mass using Missale Romanum, based on the first complete Bible, the Latin Vulgate. The Church martialed together what was inspired, and Jerome finished it. I’d serve this young priest. You can turn off the volume and just watch what he does. When Christ is broken, that is called fraction, the same root word for the math term. You may never touch Him.
“After Pentecost, the apostles spread throughout the world. The bishops of the metropolises of Rome (the pope), Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Constantinople each maintained their own forms of liturgy.
“Though originally Greek, the language of the Roman church changed to Latin around the second century. For Roman Catholics, the Traditional Latin Mass descends from this period.
“Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman remarks, the Traditional Latin Mass is ‘virtually unchanged since the third century.’1
1. Newman, J. H. Callista. 1901.”
One can trace the Latin Mass from A.D. 199 through to the last century by means of art history. Below he faces ad orientem. He does not face the people. That switch occurred in 1969 for the first time. It is not my fault that scores of Catholics are so ignorant. I do my best.

Word origin: obscure. Pronunciation: (sɪn-ud). Definition: elitist, schismatic, waste of time, waste of money. EWTN will cover it because the television and radio network wastes donor money. I speak for 1.0 persons, and I say that some people on the list are heretics, and all are suspect heretics.
Did you know that Pope Francis blessed the World Economic Forum and spoke for the Clinton Global Initiative? Open borders, socialism, and climate change are paramount. For the synod, add in women priests and a communion free-for-all.
Download the attendees of the synod. They are a self-satisfied bunch of people, devoid of any internal turmoil or uncertainty of purpose, and that is abnormal:
My life is filled with uncertainties. The love affair with the Three makes life livable.
An archdiocese in Hungary turned a Latin Mass church into a restaurant. The Vatican probably got a cut of the proceeds. Evil is giving us no quarter. It's war on us.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Catholicism/comments/16skzdf/archdiocese_turns_latin_mass_church_into/ Lots of locations for the Latin Mass are in the ghetto. Normal.
Requirements and Characteristics
The new Mass is its product. There is no future until it is wiped away. Lazy Catholics and lazy priests will not learn the Latin Mass. They don't want a hard challenge. Forget about people I moved among for 50 years. They demanded nothing of me, and I asked nothing of them. The priests at St. Stephen will not let you pretend and hide sins. Try again or go fish.
What keeps the Biden Crime Family and others like it in power is abortion.
“Young people are not put off by authoritarian posturing,” says Dom Alcuin Reid about Pope Francis. Reid is prior of San Benoit Monastery in France.
French monasteries to support are San Benoit, Fontgombault, and Le Barroux.
Here is a list of the traditional Catholic societies of priests to support: FSSP, SSPX, ICKSP, and Institute of the Good Shepherd. I am an FSSP Confraternity member (lay).
Good Shepherd, which I had not mentioned before, is in France, Italy, Poland, Uganda, Brazil, and Columbia, with headquarters in Winchester, NH.
If you have been following me, this should be getting easier and easier.
Other people claim to be Christian, and belong to a church, or don’t, but I cannot claim the same without a priest. Neither can you. Only he can bring the sacraments. Without him I am nothing, living without hope. Got to have the sacraments. Do it.
I live in the city of Sacramento, named after the river that forms its western border. The river was named by Spanish cavalry officer Gabriel Moraga for the Santisimo Sacramento, Most Holy Sacrament, what you are seeing.
It is easy to be in a church where no demands are made on the way you live. That is the nature of the fight. Some Catholics want to make being Catholic easy. That won’t happen. Traditional people clench a fist and say no.
Nicholas Lemme, Professor of Gregorian chant, sacred polyphony, and voice at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, FSSP, Denton, NE. All our priests can sing well. Jacob, our seminarian/BA Music, is singing on this day. The FSSP is selective; you won’t get in just because you want in. https://www.nicholaslemme.com/about
The beautiful, beautiful art reflects rightly ordered relationships.
At 15 mins - a breathtaking double pledge of fealty and love is made at the altar.
At 26 mins - an angel rests her head on Our Lord’s and gives him some comfort.
At 47 mins - Our Lady in chains shares the bonds of captivity borne by her son.
At 58 mins - a lady traces the shadow of her love to help her remember his face.
Women gazing on the crucifix are sensual in some of the paintings, and the puritanical are scandalized. Hahaha. Unfortunately, American puritanism has rubbed off on us all. I am in the middle of writing something I hope will raise physicality. An admirer of the face but not the body, I like the actions of the loving and kisses. Even Judas did as much. Can we not do better?
The profoundly pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute found that mifepristone is used for more than half of all abortions in the United States. In 2020, the drug accounted for 53 percent of all abortions, up from 39 percent in 2017.
I provide a graphic description, which comes directly from Planned Parenthood, because everyone needs to know what happens. "First, you take mifepristone. This pill stops the pregnancy from growing. Most people don’t feel anything after taking the mifepristone. The second medicine is misoprostol. You’ll either take the misoprostol right away, or up to 48 hours after you take the first pill — your doctor or nurse will let you know how and when to take it. This medicine causes cramping and bleeding that empties your uterus. The pregnancy tissue will come out through your vagina."
This is not headache medicine.
The criticism all these years that Catholics were sheep and would follow a leader off a cliff is true.
Vatican II and its aftermath, the switch from the Latin Mass to a wrong New Order, and Francis’ brutal and immoral crackdown on the Latin Mass—all of it has revealed that protestants were right. Catholics are brainless fawners, but not all of us.
The events of the last 50-60 years, and especially COVID, are a blessing. The truth has emerged. Father Altman is 100% correct.
He will come out of the USA, not Europe, not the Middle East.
