What is the opposite of Chartreusings?

I always think of November as the start of a new year. Strange, right? I guess the reason for that feeling is that the first Sunday of Advent usually occurs in November. The total-Church remembrance of every single soul in the Church Triumphant and Suffering, as well as mentally consolidating the “holidays” as a totality, only add to the feeling.

I won’t insult you with the notion I have all- new thoughts about the beginning of the next, new, old, same, portentous year. But I wanted to collect some observations from this part of the world that come to mind just now. So in no particular order, here they are:

1. This (s)election is the last clear chance for what remains of the American republic. I don’t mean by that that I am ignorant of the fact that the elections are corrupt, and that they have been largely totally corrupt for AT LEAST the last 60 years. If you think they aren’t, wake up a bit and listen to Bob Dylan’s masterpiece, Murder Most Foul, on a continuous loop for 24 hours straight. What I mean is that until the Trump victory where, whatever you think of his complicity or independence, something CLEARLY did not go to plan for the satanist cabal that runs the world, there was an effort to keep the appearance of choice, normalcy, and legitimacy in the election game. It was getting pretty old anyway, but hey, remember voting for Tsar Nicholas II (the execrable John McCain, h/t to John Zmirak)? Or frontier Hindu Mitt Romney? Please. But something in the Trump election put a spanner in the works. It might be worth a year in Purgatory to have seen chief witch and suicide-machine Hillary so disappointed.

Don’t get me wrong. There absolutely will be massive election fraud next week. Massive. My observation that this is the last clear chance for what remains of the republic centers around this: are the powers that be going to go with the strategy of the illusion of choice and legitimacy, or, having never before been so close to total power, with a cowed, deathvaxxed, effeminate and obedient populace, will they simply not give a final damn about whether you know that they know that you know that they know they are lying to you and just grab total power for the foreseeable future. Until Our Lady acts or Our Lord comes again.

Which will it be? Unless they let the Republicans take back both Houses with clear majorities, then folks, we really are near the end of the thing. The country, that is. And it is a truism that every day brings us one day closer to the end of everything.

2. When will anyone do something about Bergoglio? There are still several good Bishops left. Some good Cardinals. How can anyone with a functioning brain + Catholic sensibility NOT see that this guy is an antipope and a destroyer. I sometimes wonder whether anyone would act even if Bergoglio live-streamed a gay blessing on two people in the very act of sodomy. Hello? Synod on synodality? Really? They’re just laughing at you. I shudder to think what is said at the sodomite frivolities held on Vatican grounds about our total lack of response to the (attempted— I know the Church will last until the end) destruction of the visible Church.

And, with respect for what they have protected from the wreckers for so many years, I do not exclude the SSPX from this lament. They are not in schism, true. They also have an irregular canonical status. There is a much greater latitude for them to act, even viewing things from a temporal perspective. Is the Francismercy they’ve gotten so great that they cannot say the way things are?

The emperor has no clothes! Cardinals, bishops, priests… do something! Our Lord is daily mocked and insulted!

3. It is so important to do everything possible to stay in or get in the state of grace. End of the world? Possibly. Fatima cataclysm? Likely. You could also die today from any number of causes. We are on the edge of societal collapse and Divine chastisement. It pays to take care of one’s soul.

4. Finally, in light of the above, pray fervently for the dead, the holy souls in Purgatory. This November, you might want very much their intercession for you in a time of judgement that may come very soon indeed.
