To stand in the truth…



Feast of the Prophet Elias
General and Father of “the Order of the Virgin”

Another “proper” solemnity in the Teresian Carmel (traditional pre-Vatican II “Divino Afflato” calendar) – the others being that of the Bl. Virgin Mary of Mt. Carmel (July 16), of St. Teresa of Jesus (Oct. 15), and of St. John of the Cross (Nov. 24); four “proper” solemnities – another privilege for the Teresian Carmel; “Novus Ordo” OCDs no longer keep this as such.

“The Lord is near to all them who call upon Him: to all who call upon Him in truth” (from the “Gradual” of the Mass, Ps. 144.18). See how the Sacred Writ qualifies the terms of divine friendship; the first condition, for in another place, “you are of your father, the devil… from the beginning… he stood not in the truth” (Jn. 8.44).

Three Carmelite Friars at the other side of the world have fled the “New” ‘Catholic’ DisOrder – the “pseudo-Church” (Bella Dodd, ex-Sec. Gen. of the Communist Party of America who embraced the Catholic Faith, cf., our post “The Year 1929“) built on the false ‘Modernist liberal’ god of the “New ‘Catholic Theology’” poisoning vocations, especially, and countless souls led by false obedience to drink from its very source and expression, that is, the “New” ‘liturgy’ (the “New Rite” of ‘Sacraments’, particularly the “New” ‘Mass’ designed by a Freemason with his Protestant collaborators that has become the “norm” by hierarchical dissimulation) – to join the Catholic Resistance. May we persevere in this battle for the Rights of the true God of our General and Father Elias unto the obliteration of that sacrilegious “table” set up for that “abomination of desolation” (Mt. 24) in its “dress rehearsal” stage.

The Queen of Heaven “set in battle array”


Solemn Commemoration of the
Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel


A Great Sign appeared in heaven, a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under Her feet, and on Her head a crown of twelve stars (Apocalypse 12.1).

This day, the Queen of heaven, comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array (Canticle of Canticles 6.9), hands to us the Church Militant Her Scapular – sign of eternal alliance with the Apocalyptic Woman prophesied of Old to crush [the infernal serpent’s] head [sewer of all errors with their hosts of sins]” (Genesis 3.15); sign of protection for THE REST of Her seed (Apoc. 12.17) who wage battle against all the assaults of the ego, the flesh, the “new world/’catholic’ disorder”, and of the devil and (her) apostate angels, powers, influences and minions, with all their deceptive half-truths, snares, schemes, suggestions and allurements; therefore, sign of predestination and of salvation: sign of consecration to Her, who, crowned with the Truth of Apostolic Tradition, exposes and crushes the “diabolical disorientation” – this chastisement of all seduction of iniquity to them that perish [who] receive not the love of the truth (2 Thessalonians 2.10)…

“It is painful to see such a great disorientation and in so many persons who occupy places of responsibility… the devil has succeeded in infiltrating evil under the cover of good… in leading… priests and… consecrated souls… into error [the “New” ‘Catholicism’** with its new ‘priesthood’ and new worship based on a “NEW” ‘Catholic THEOlogy] … They are blind men guiding other blind men” (Sr. Lucia, C.D.). And no less than Pope Paul VI, who merely “WISH[ed]” (“volumus” in his “Missale Romanum” of April 1969) his “NEW” Rite of WORSHIP (as if there can be a new god* to be worshipped!) – the “New” ‘Mass’ designed by the Freemason Bugnini – offered, admitted this: “A sentiment of CONFUSION… spreading AMONG THE CHILDREN OF THE CHURCH, even among the best ones, and sometimes ALSO WITH THE MOST QUALIFIED, WHO EXERCISE THE GREATEST AUTHORITY [read: the one sitting on the Chair of St. Peter!].” – See more @ “Our Lady against the diabolical campaign

* The “no Catholic God” (the true God of the Catholic Faith) finally unmasked by Antipope Bergoglio.

** An attempt at synthesis or reconciliation of the Catholic Religion with today’s ‘Modernist liberalism’ of the 1789 ‘Rights of Man’ – the ‘Church’ “at the service of humanity” [but ‘naturally good’ : Masonic ‘naturalism’ – no wound of Original Sin].”

God judges the “New Rite of Worship” (the New ‘Mass’) an “abomination” still…



Feast of St. Ephrem

Deacon, Confessor and Doctor of the Church

Note from Rev. Friar John, C.D.:

Bp. Williamson : “Traditional Catholics absorb with their mother’s milk that the new rite of Mass (NOM) is an abomination in the eyes of God…. Then how can God work with it eucharistic miracles…?” (“Novus Ordo Missae – II”, Eleison Comments, No. 437, 27th November 2015).


“Greater abominations… men having their backs turned toward… the Lord” (Ezech. 8.16)

That implies that the New Mass – the so-called ‘Ordinary Form’ by prevarication – is in reality (in the eyes of God) not the “abomination of desolation” in its “dress rehearsal” (the Bishop referring to our age vis-à-vis the 7th and last age of the Church with the appearance of the Antichrist).
In every VALID Mass, there’s already a miracle taking place: TRANSUBSTANTIATION. In “Eucharistic Miracle”, the miracle that has already taken place is only made plainly manifest – now we could see it as it really is, the veils (the accidents: color, texture, taste, smell, etc. of a bread/wine) having been removed: indeed the bread was turned into the Real Flesh of Our Lord by the power of His words!That implies that the New Mass – the so-called ‘Ordinary Form’ by prevarication – is in reality (in the eyes of God) not the “abomination of desolation” in its “dress rehearsal” (the Bishop referring to our age vis-à-vis the 7th and last age of the Church with the appearance of the Antichrist).

“MANY will say to Me in that day: Lord, Lord, did we not perform miracles in Your Name [by Consecration at Mass, according to Ven. Louis Granada, OP, a great spiritual master in the time of Sts. Teresa of Jesus and John of the Cross, in “Sinner’s Guide”]? Amen, amen, I will say unto them: I do not know you, depart from Me you workers of INIQUITY!” (Mt.VII)

A pleasing Sacrifice before God – this is what a legitimate or LICIT Mass amounts to; not true of ‘New Masses’ even when the Real Presence is validly confected in them – always ILLICIT: no benefit derived even from a NOM that is valid. St. Thomas teaches that the Sacraments of heretics and schismatics, even when valid still, do not confer grace (cf., our post “The New ‘Mass’ even when valid, always illegitimate“. Of the ‘New Mass’, even when valid : not only another form of parody wherein the stolen priestly powers of the Savior are abused – God forced, as it were, to be present on a polluted ‘table’; more so, a “striking departure from Catholic Theology” (Ottaviani Intervention) – off with the Catholic God of Truth.

If ever God chose to make a DISPLAY also of His wonders in a valid New ‘Mass’ it may rather be to wake the ‘devout’, especially, to the PROPER Catholic sense of and attitude before what they hold on to still as sacred (that should get them thrown out sooner or later) and to belie the Sedevacantists.

Divine judgment: “When you shall see the ABOMINATION of desolation standing in the holy place… FLEE…” (Mt. XXIV).

The Queen of Heaven ‘uncrowned’



Traditional Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Her great title, “Mediatrix of All Graces” – sacrificed @ Vatican II in the name of ‘ecumenism’ (another great Vatican II travesty!).

“I am the Mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and of virtue. Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits. For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb. My memory is unto everlasting generations” (Ecclesiastcus 24.24-28).

The “New Rite of ‘Mass'” – even when valid, always illicit



Sunday in the Octave of “Corpus Christi”

The calamities that fell upon God’s chosen people of Old prefigured already those that will chastise the Church Militant for its necessary purification. “Now all these things happened to them in figure… they are written for our correction” (1 Cor. 10.11). Pope Leo XIII taught this in his Encyclical “Diuturnum illud” but with grave admonition: those chastisements are graver for us who have been raised to the dignity of a Christian (one who bears Christ in him; better, another Christ yet in its varying degrees of correspondence unto its perfection – beginners, the advanced, and the proficient or the more fervent) by grace merited at the prize of the Most Precious Blood of the Eternal Word-made Flesh.

As this day dawned but yet it was still dark, the light of the Eternal Word, in the lessons of the First Nocturn of the Office of Matins taken from I Kings 4.1-11 (DRV), gave us another glimpse of the mystery of God’s purifying hand now laying heavily on the Church. The chosen people were getting desperate in the face of invasion by the Philistines. They fetched for the Ark of the Covenant – that mighty visible form of the presence of the God of Hosts in the midst of His chosen people of Old. But God delivered His people into the hands of the enemies and let the Ark even as their enemies’ precious spoil! Why this tragedy? The High Priest, Heli, consented to the corruption of the people by condoning his erring priests in the mockery of the sacred.

The ‘mainstream official’ Church still has the Real Presence in cases when a still validly ordained presbyter validly confects also the Blessed Sacrament. But from the preceding lesson, bringing about the Real Presence VALIDLY (with the proper intention and with the prescribed matter and form – the formula of Consecration over the matter – of the Sacrament) in their midst is not enough. There’s still the crucial matter of bringing the Real Presence LICITLY : The priests who brought in the Ark were NOT PLEASING to God – they were far from the ideal of priestly ministry prescribed by God; so are the presbyters more so marked with a “new priesthood” (cf., “At the heart of the crisis – the priesthood“), donned in Lutheran/Anglican ‘liturgical’ costumes and presiding over a ‘table’ at a remodeled sanctuary after the fashion of a Masonic Lodge (cf., “The Catholic Sanctuary – II“) to offer a “new rite of worship” [the “new rite of ‘m(e)ss”” – the falsely claimed “Ordinary Form”] to the (g)od of their “NEW THEOlogy” (the non-Catholic god already unabashedly unmasked by Bergoglio ). To sum it up, even when the Consecration in this Vatican II-Church of the “Novus Ordo” (the “New World disorder”) is still valid it will always remain illicit – unacceptable before the true God of Catholic Tradition; St. Thomas, in his “Summa”, teaches that even when the Sacraments of heretics and schismatics are validly conferred [also in the ‘Black Mass’ of Satanists] they are illicit – the same for the apostates of the day; the Sacraments in their hands do not confer grace – which comes from God appeased, not mocked and enraged! This we are sure of from the preceding lesson by the Eternal Word – the ‘mainstream’, despite the palpably concrete mighty Divine Presence in their midst, was held easy prey to the powerful enemies, figuratively: eager priority of being ‘happy’ ‘in’-citizens of a “New World Order’ where there are no absolute truth-holders (the ‘pre-Vatican II Church’ clerics) and where Christ the King does not insist on His absolute dominion both in socio-economic and private affairs; willing ‘weak’ preys to cravings and lusts of the flesh: ‘I’m only human,’ ‘many commit the same,’ ‘it’s natural urge anyways;’ willing cohorts of the proud devil: who do not want to go any further in pressing the truth confronting them down to its logical conclusions or, having gone painfully through it even with only the first steps cry, ‘no, I will not submit, it’s too much!’

There are of course certain cases when souls – in invincible ignorance and of just dispositions – in the “Novus Ordo ‘Church’ still receive grace but not because of a “Novus Ordo” ‘Sacrament’ reverently conferred validly; the graces flow unto them from the “throne of grace” – from our traditional Apostolic altars. Yet, this mercy of God towards them does not stop there: “iustum dedu[c]it Dominus per vias rectas” (The Lord conducts the just man through the right ways, Wis. 10.10) – and so they are led out of the ‘Novus Ordo’.

Apostasy – the fundamental Truth of the Catholic Faith overthrown



Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity – “Baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost” (Mt. 20.28).

The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reveals thus the true God – the fundamental truth of the Catholic Religion. As such, the Athanasian Creed (Office of Prime in the Roman Breviary for the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity and on Sundays after Pentecost) declares :

“Whosoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally.

Now the Catholic Faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the substance… ”

But Antipope Bergoglio, the “presiding” ‘Pontifex’ of the “New World Order” (the “Novus Ordo”) Vatican II-‘Church”:  “I believe… not in Catholic God, there’s NO CATHOLIC GOD.” – See more @ our post “Estote sapientes

Truth – first in the order of true Charity



The Descent of the Holy Spirit – “That the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father has given Me commandments, so do I” (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 14.23-31).

“Jesus Christ,” says St. Alphonsus, “was given to us as Savior and Master.” “Hence,” continues the great Doctor, “He came on earth principally to teach us, not only by His words, but also by His own example, how we are to love God – our Supreme Good.”

This day reveals to us that Powerful Love Divine Which worked in Him and will work in us – the Spirit of Truth: truth is the first in the order of embrace of the Supreme Infinite Good, “I will espouse thee to Me in Faith” (Hos. 2.20). It is the truth which tells us the real good we ought to desire and take delight in by possession; needless to say, it is also the truth that makes us see through the seeming and apparent good in evil to be teared up and discarded – hence the pains of sacrificing in true love: Divine Charity expurging from our hearts its petty ‘toys’ that fade into obsolescence and decrepitude, petty ‘toys’ that perish after they have wearied us. Such is the power of the blazing “charity of God poured forth into our hearts” (Rom. 5.5). “Send forth Your Light, that our hearts like Yours burn bright.”

To remain Catholic, stay with the ‘official Institution’?



Feast of St. Athanasius – Greek Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church known as “the Voice of Orthodoxy” when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost Arian. 

Against the schismatic Orientals (the self-styled “Orthodox”) who deny the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff over the Universal Church – in one of the numerous instances of forced exile of this venerable Patriarch of Alexandria, he appealed to the authority of Pope Julius who restored him to his episcopal see.

And now, when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost 1789 revolutionary perverts (cf., our post “The Year 1929“) – against the same pseudo-ecclesiology (false doctrine on the Church) current in the mainstream ‘Novus Ordo’ (New World Order) ‘Church’, as with the mainstream ‘SSPX’, which equates the Church to her institutions (churches, seminaries, monasteries and convents, schools, charities, etc.): “to remain Catholic is to stay with the ‘officials'”…

Sorrow for “a little while”



Third Sunday after Easter

“A little while, and now you shall not see Me… Amen, amen, I say to you shall lament and weep… and you shall be made sorrowful… So also you now indeed have sorrow…” (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 16.16-22)

“When therefore you shall see the ABOMINATION of desolation… standing in the holy place [the Sanctuary]… FLEE to the mountains… For wheresoever the Body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together” (Mt. 24.15-16; 28.29). “Greater ABOMINATIONS… men having their BACKS TURNED TOWARD THE LORD” (Ezech. 8.13).

Feast of the Annunciation


“Be it done to me according to your word.”

St. Therese: “Those souls are rare who don’t measure the divine power according to their narrow minds; people want exceptions… but God alone hasn’t the right to make any exceptions!”

A most blessed Feast!
