The headline is a quote from Michael Matt, who has a thoughtful video about current things at the Remnant.
Not always a fan, but this post at From Rome is a good and somewhat startling listen.
Seen today. Did St. Benedict have to deal with people like this when the Roman Empire fell?
But here is an article by N.S Sherlock at the Federalist that sums the last two years up pretty well:
The Covid Cartel Lied, People Died. Now They Say It’s All Your Fault
With admiration and much respect for the Canadian trucker freedom convoy and all their supporters, I had to have a rueful chuckle at this headline from Lifesite News:
‘Canadian farmer fears ‘we have no freedoms anymore’ after bank accounts were frozen over trucker donation’
Buddy, no need to fear. Your freedoms are gone. Gay Hitler took them.
This won’t end until the Canadian people rise up and take their freedoms back. The people are ultimately the bottom line guardians of their God-given freedoms. The government in Italy with Mussolini, and in Romania with Cauceascu, found this out the hard way.
We do not know if and when the Church will regain her splendor, nor whether this rebellious and apostate Hierarchy will realize the outrage caused to God and the incalculable damage caused to souls. But we know that the only way to the restoration of the Church passes through Calvary and culminates on the Cross: it is there that each of us will be able to understand that the earthly triumph of Religion is possible only in a society that lives by Christ, breathes Christ, is nourished by Christ, and performs every action, from the humblest to the most heroic, in honor of Christ. And in order for this to happen, we need faithful who live the Faith in an all-encompassing way, who in their families transmit this Faith to future generations; we need generous and holy young people who vow themselves to the glory of God and to the salvation of souls, who in seminaries and convents grow in holiness, asceticism, mysticism, erudition and preaching. We need priests who respond to their vocation not out of worldly interests or a lust for power or money, but rather in order to better serve the Lord and convert the world to Christ. We need Bishops who are assiduous in prayer, humble, and detached from earthly goods. We need a Pope who is the Vicar of Christ, and not a servant of the New World Order. We need a Pope, to be precise. Period.From a reader, to Aldo Maria Valli, at the Remnant
Of course, bear in mind, we have Pope just now, and we can all pray he will be able to act as one, because time is running out.
Today is the Church’s annual reminder that the first Pope and Vicar of Christ ruled over a See other than Rome. A reminder I hope we will not need in the near future but, seeing as the liturgical tradition handed down to us also serves to instruct us, I think it possible we may.
21For to me, to live is Christ: and to die is gain. 22And if to live in the flesh: this is to me the fruit of labour. And what I shall choose I know not. 23But I am straitened between two: having a desire to be dissolved and to be with Christ, a thing by far the better. 24But to abide still in the flesh is needful for you. 25And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all, for your furtherance and joy of faith: 26That your rejoicing may abound in Christ Jesus for me, by my coming to you again.
27Only let your conversation be worthy of the gospel of Christ: that, whether I come and see you, or, being absent, may hear of you, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind labouring together for the faith of the gospel. 28And in nothing be ye terrified by the adversaries: which to them is a cause of perdition, but to you of salvation, and this from God. 29For unto you it is given for Christ, not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him: 30Having the same conflict as that which you have seen in me and now have heard of me.
Canadian parliament approves gay Hitler’s rise to Dictator.
I’m sure Biden gives a crap.
Read that last sentence how you like.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. Only she can save us
