Mass with the Canons

One of the things I intend to do when this is all over is to make the drive up to West Virginia and visit the Canons of the New Jerusalem.

My Jesus, mercy!

The sentimental lie goes half way around the world before the truth can get it's boots on...

My uncle was on a ventilator multiple times when he got pneumonia. Something seemed fishy in the story about the Italian priest who supposedly gave up his vent to a younger patient.  It's not true. May God have mercy on Fr. Giuseppe Berardelli and may he rest in peace. 

Coonman snarls again

Virginia's governor, Ralph "Coonman" Northam is threatening jail up to a year or a fine of $2,500 if you're caught in church with more than 10 people. A year in jail for praying in church. Seriously? How is he going to enforce this? Is he going to have a cop staking out every house of worship in the Commonwealth? If I'm praying in the chapel and somebody walks in should I bolt out the door? Lord have mercy.

random thoughts on a tired Tuesday night

Has the world gone mad and overreacted? We've given up our freedom of assembly and movement and caused a financial disaster. In the coming weeks I think people are going to start asking if it was worth it.

Random thoughts on a Saturday afternoon.

  • When a professional Catholic calls you stupid, Hitler(?!), or a show off who just wants to flaunt your "personal penchant for public display of Eucharistic piety", because you said that you are sad about not being able to be in the Real Presence of Our Lord and wish you could go to Mass, that is your 50 foot tall and in neon lights sign that you need to forget out ever sending them donations. 

  • In Wisconsin the government is encouraging people to spy on their neighbors and report them if they have more than ten people gathered. Boom! Just like that, monsters are due on Maple Street*. I remember reading about all the frightened people who snitched on their neighbors, friends, family and co-workers to the Stasi in East Germany.....

  • "The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired" - St. Nicholas of Flue
  • After New York made abortion legal up to birth I decided I wasn't go back there to shop anymore. After reading (WARNING--NASTINESS AHEAD), this I'm definitely not going back. It's waaaaay too freaky in Manhattan and maybe the boroughs too.
  • You know those very expensive Italian leather goods that you thought were made by free Italian craftsmen? They may have been made by a Chinese immigrant under questionable conditions.
  • Most Precious Blood of Jesus parish in Pittsburgh is live streaming Mass. *Monsters Are Due on Maple Street was a brilliant Twilight Zone episode where aliens trick an a whole neighborhood into descending into suspicion, panic and violence by turning off the lights, and electronics.
