King of Kings

England is toast

Practising Muslims will outnumber Christians in England soon. Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for your people.

Take up thy cross

Sweet Jesus, give me the strength to bear my own cross

So, where are the feminists?

Have you noticed that not one prominent feminist has said jack about Dr. Gosnell, the Philadelphia butcher? Feminism is for women who, like Daisy Buchanan in the Great Gatsby, smash up things, societies and creatures and go on to their next obsession leaving other people to deal witht the wreckage. They don't care about the rest of us as long as they get what they want.

They will not condemn an abortion clinic that has cat urine and feces all over the place. They will not condemn blood caked tables and recliners. They will not utter a peep of protest about the unsterilized instruments of death. Why not? Becuase if they do, they might have to look at the "nice"abortion clinics they go to. Far better for a poor, black girl in the ghetto to be maimed or dead than that they should have a moment's pause about their precious cause. They are like Gollum and his infernal ring.

Dr. Gosnell's house of horrors

Many people are agog because of the horrifying story coming out of Pennsylvania. Dr. Gosnel lopened up an abortion clinic in his own neighborhood and specialized in killing late term babies. He delivered them alive and then killed them. He also maimed his patients on occasion, used unsterilized instruments, let his cats use the whole place as their litter box, and killed at least two women. The place stank, he had blood stained sheets and blankets and nobody at the Health Department seemed to give a damn.

I'm not shocked at all. In every abortion clinic, even the best decorated and most sanitary, babies are slaughtered. Every room is a Thunderdome. Two humans, mother and child go in, only one goes out. Dr. Gosnell was a sadist but do you think abortonists are nice people? Sadism is part of the job.

Every abortion clinic is filled with demons, every abortion clinic is a charnel house. Dr. Gosnell simply didn't bother to even try to sugar coat it. He and his staff will do some jail time and maybe a low level Pennsylvania official will lose his job but in the end the money will keep rolling in and the slaughter will go on somewhere else.

Random thoughts as a migraine comes storming in

  • Lately, reading Fr. Z's blog been a bit of an awkward experience. It was particularly disturbing last month. I'm trying to be subtle here but I really wish he'd drop that donation button. If people want to send him stuff that's cool but ASKING for specific items seems...

  • A married Australian woman had an abortion because she was carrying twin boys and she wanted a girl. She and her wretched husband are planning on trying for a girl again. Since she used IVF to get pregnant there's no telling how many precious lives were destroyed so that these people can have what they want. When I think of the child I lost a few years ago I find myself wishing that this horrible female is struck barren instead.
  • If a man committed murder you'd say how horrible that was. If a woman gets an abortion most people pity her. That's peculiar.

  • Have you ever noticed that when people start gassing on about civility what they really mean is "Shut up and do as I say,?"

  • I hope that one day the craze of candlelight vigils, pep rally memorials teddy bear shrines for adults goes out of style.

  • Remember the 80s when everybody loved the Taliban because they were fighting the Russians? In retrospect, we should've minded our own business.

  • Trust Pope Benedict. We don't understand everything. Some things may be head scratchers but trust in our shepherd. He has been given to us by God.

  • If Catholics would just ignore Fr. Cutie he'll go away. Let him peddle his book to the Protestants. He demands attention. Don't give it to him.
    May God have mercy on him and may the poor man recover his vocation and senses.

Three fascinating blogs

The Pulpit

New Theological Movement

Traditional Latin Mass in Maryland I could spend hours reading this one.


Pope John Paul II will be beatified this year on the feast of the Divine Mercy. I'm not sure this is a good idea. Before anybody gets mad, let me try to explain. I don't doubt JPII's personal holiness but five years is too soon to beatify anybody but a martyr and St. Margaret Clitherow, who did die a hideous death for the Faith in 1586 had to wait until 1970 to be cannonized. St. Therese waited 20 years I think, and St. Thomas Moore waited for hundreds of years. St. Joan of Arc was burnt in 1431. She was only officially beatified in 1909! St. Pio and St. Andre Bessette, with hundreds of known miracles in their lifetimes and afterwards waited decades for their recent cannonizations.

The Church traditionally waited, prudently for emotions to die down and for uncritical fans or hate blinded critics to cool off or die off. The Church also had the position of the devil's advocate -- a man whose job it was to look for anything that would prove that a person was not a saint. This method served the Church well.

I'm not knocking John Paul, I loved him. A photo of him has been in my bedroom since I was a child but I think this is all too soon.

Mary, Virgo Prudentissima, who John Paul II loved and was loved by, pray for us.

Malevelence has a face.

I didn't say anything about the Giffords shooting because frankly, the worthless partisan jackasses in the media have over hyped the story in an effort to gin up hysteria. I'm pretty sick of it and have been avoiding the news all weekend. One thing struck me today though. I saw a picture of the killer and was startled. He's supposed to be in his early 20s but he looks ancient. He resembles nothing less than a cross between Hanibal Lecter and the devil's spawn from The Passion of the Christ. When the mind and soul are clouded it shows in some people.

A staggering statistic

In New York City nearly 40 percent of all pregnancies end in abortion. Considering how big New York is, that's staggering. Abraham Lincoln once said that he feared that every drop of blood drawn by the slaver's lash would have to be paid for. And it was by millions of men from the North and South in the Civil War. If you stop to think about all the babies that have been aborted as part of the law of the land in America it chills to the heart to think about how that blood is going to be paid for.

Well this is embarassing

A Spanish youth group is raisng money by selling a calendar showing themselves in very nearly naked poses in scenes from the Holy Passion. Wow. I don't know what the priests and nuns (if they have any) at this parish have been teaching but something obviously got lost along the way.

Painted babies in the public eye

The Anchoress is upset because French Vogue used little girls as models in the December issue. One of the commenters mourned that humanity is dying. That's hyperbole. Humanity isn't dying. Western Humanity, in particular, is regressing to what was common before Christianity and what is common in most of Asia, Arabia and Africa. Child marriage and sexual mutilation is normal in several Muslim countries, they fetishize school girls in Japan, rape babies in South Africa and we all know what Thailand is famous for.

Back in the ancient times, unless you were rich, most people got rid of their "useless" daughters as soon as they hit puberty. Childhood did not exist really for boys or girls. You were a baby and then as soon as you could be useful you were used. The Moloch worsipers burned their babies alive in order to please their god. The Greeks and Romans openly practiced infanticide. Indians in what is today called Peru, sacrificed their most beautiful children to their gods.
After a long stretch of Christian progress the status of women and children has fallen back to ancient times. We can work outside the home (big whoop, women have always worked outside the home and have all the abortions our poor bodies can handle whether it gives up breast cancer later or not) but we are more sex objects now than ever before. It's all we are to many men. And Satan is not just satisfied with us. He and his minions are after the little girls. It didn't start yesterday either. Brooke Shields was a sex symbol before she was even 13. The "sophisticated" cocktails-in- the-Ivory Tower set is pleased that we are regressing to the pre-Christian era but the rest of us are catching on to the horror. We need a religious revival and quick.

St. Louis de Monfort, who converted millions, pray for us.
The Carmelite martyrs, whose deaths woke up the murderous mob and led to the end of the French Revolution, pray for us.
St. Maria Goretti, who fought for her purity, forgave and converted a hardened sinner, pray for us.
St. Agnes, who's holiness shamed the brothel goers, pray for us.
St. Joan of Arc, the Maid of Orleans, virgin and warrior, pray for us.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us. We don't deserve your prayers, Mother but oh, how we need them!

Thank God, this kind of thing is dying out

Apparently the priest in this video has a live baby for Christmas Mass every year. Thank God that the showman priests who make the Mass about them and their cleverness are going into retirement. The sooner this kind of silliness dies out the better. Mass shouldn't be cute, irreverent or dumb as dirt. The worship of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is not a pageant for kindergartners. Can you imagine St. John Vianney or St. Pio doing this?

Mass at St. Rita's is really special and there are times when I wish time could slow down so I could sitand soak it all in like a sponge. It was one of those times for the Ephphany Mass. The statues of three kings were moved from across the church to the nativity scene. Our tiniest altar boy gravely lit the candles that he could reach and Fr. Bear did the rest. One of our old A team altar boys was home from college and it was great seeing him.

Two old women who've never spoken to me in four years shocked me by wishing Rocky and me a happy New Year. One of our ushers, whom I've never even seen smile before gave Rocky a cheerful nod. Around me in the pews people were praying or silently reading the bulletin. The organist played with gusto. I really should've gone up to the choir loft to thank him for his work last year. There was a hushed anticipation in the air. The cantor sang sweetly. The lector was.... different but her reading was ineresting. The homily was like a shaft of light in the darkness. Fr. Bear announced that the Thursday Tridentine Mass will be a high solemn one, I can't wait. People stayed after Mass to pray and look at the creche. Rocky and Fr. Eagle sighed over the hapless Redskins.

Help the Christians

The Arabs call the founding of modern Israel the Nakba, "the catastrophe,". I won't get into that but in the last 60 years the Christian presence in Israel has gone from 18% to 2%. That's a catastrophic collaspe of population and Christians are being hard pressed not only in Israel but in the whole Middle East. The Vatican estimates that there may be just 17 million left in the whole Middle East. I expect nothing from the politicians but I find it shocking how so few American Christians seem to care about the fate of our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land and the Middle East. It's almost like they're ashamed to mention the Christians. The respones to the recent attack in Egypt has been pitiful. The beleagured Christians there know that they are on their own. What a shame.
