Until the rent comes due
O beautiful Flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine, Splendor of Heaven, holy and singular, who brought forth the Son of God, still ever remaining a Pure Virgin, assist me in this necessity. O Star of the Sea, help and protect me! Show me that Thou art my Mother.
O Mary, Conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee!
Mother and Ornament of Carmel, Pray for us!
Virgin, Flower of Carmel, Pray for us!
Patroness of all who wear the Scapular, Pray for us!
Hope of all who die wearing the Scapular, Pray for us!
St. Joseph, Friend of the Sacred Heart, Pray for us!
St. Joseph, Chaste Spouse of Mary, Pray for us!
St. Joseph, Our Patron, Pray for us!
O sweet Heart of Mary, Be our Salvation!
“Colonel Stuart, if I had my way we would show no quarter to the enemy. No more than the redskins showed your troopers. The black flag, sir.
“If the North triumphs, it is not alone the destruction of our property. It is the prelude to anarchy, infidelity … … the loss of free and responsible government. It is the triumph of commerce. The banks, factories.
“We should meet the invader on the verge of just defense… …and raise the black flag. No quarter to the violators of our homes and firesides. Our political leadership is too timid to face the reality of this coming war. They should look to the Bible. It is full of such wars. Only the black flag will bring the North to its senses and rapidly end the war.”
The euphemistically-named baby murderers over at Planned Parenthood have announced that they may be forced to stop performing abortions at their St. Louis abortuary. If true, and we all know we can count on the honesty of people who make obscene profits by killing babies, it would make the state of Missouri an abortion-free state.
One more reason to love Missouri.
Abortion is the anti-sacrament of the left; it won’t be ended so easily. The strategy at the moment is to paint pro-life legislators as extremists by scaring people with an idea of a puritanical type theocracy where women are slaves to misogynistic laws. “No access to reproductive health anywhere in the state” is a cudgel. We’ll see how it turns out.
Again, one can only hope and pray.
