Today is the Feast of Saint Benedict, and I believe the bogeyman forced this gentleman out:

From the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts and Mass Resistance, sent to me at 10:15 AM this morning:
OUTVETS ADMITTED TO BOSTON'S
SAINT PATRICK'S DAY PARADE
AFTER THREATS OF VIOLENCE
Mass Resistance and the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts have received multiple reports from within the Allied War Veterans Council---organizers of Boston's Saint Patrick's Day Parade---that the homosexual group OUTVETS was admitted to the 2017 parade only after numerous threats of violent protests disrupting the parade, potentially causing injuries and worse, were directed at Council members on social media.
Reports were also received that the Boston Police found these threats to be credible, and told Council members that they could not guarantee that they could contain the potential violence or maintain a secure perimeter around the parade route. According to sources, the Boston Police also told parade organizers that if they went forward with the parade without OUTVETS, the Council would be responsible for the ensuing violence. The police also suggested that the parade might have to be cancelled for public safety reasons.
If these reports are accurate, this is the second time in three years that the City of Boston has threatened to cancel the parade, as it was revealed in recent court filings that Mayor Marty Walsh threatened to withdraw the parade permit if homosexual groups were not allowed to march in 2014.
Mass Resistance and the Catholic Action League are characterizing these reports as "an appalling example of the unscrupulous methods and extreme measures which the Walsh Administration is willing to resort to in fulfilling its campaign pledges to the homosexual groups who supported the election of Marty Walsh as mayor."
Mass Resistance President Brian Camenker stated: "If groups critical of homosexuality threatened violence towards a gay pride parade, they would be investigated by the FBI for everything from federal hate crimes to domestic terrorism. I have, personally, spoken to three current and former officials of the Allied War Veterans Council who have corroborated these allegations. The U. S. Attorney's office needs to investigate these reports to determine if the civil and constitutional rights of parade organizers were violated."
Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle made the following comment: "This is sheer thuggery by the Walsh Administration. A nine to zero United States Supreme Court decision has been, effectively, nullified by a city government engaging in unlawful threats, bullying, intimidation, ruthless pressure tactics, and the use of law enforcement to coerce citizens into forfeiting their constitutional rights. One of the most disturbing aspects of this controversy is that the leadership of the Boston Police now seem invested in implementing the political agenda of the Walsh Administration. Does the rule of law still apply? Boston used to be called 'The Cradle of Liberty.' Now, it resembles a banana republic, with a Peronist mayor."
Interfering with the exercise of constitutional rights is a crime in Massachusetts (MGL Chapter 265, Section 37), and since 1991, has been a hate crime (Chapter 434 of the Acts of 1991).

With the ongoing apostasy within the Catholic Church coming to full rot during the Fatima Year of 2017, and after one career in exile because of my faith and where I live in the country (in a state that makes veiled references towards Catholics, patriots, conservatives, etc.), I figure I could start a new apostolate that would assist priests in saying the Traditional Latin Mass. Please watch my intro video below:

Since March 17th, the Feast of Saint Patrick, falls on a Friday this year, many bishops (including Boston's Cardinal O'Malley) have dispensed the requirement to abstain from meat that day to eat corned beef and cabbage. I totally disagree, and hereby republish previous-years' posts on St. Patrick:

Thomas Aquinas College, a Catholic classical liberal arts college with a Great Books program based in Santa Paula, California, will be opening a satellite campus in Northfield, Massachusetts in the Fall of 2018, thanks to the donation of campus property once owned by evangelist Dwight L. Moody and the Northfield Seminary he founded there. The Sage Chapel, designed by Shepley, Rutan, and Coolidge (now Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbott) in the Gothic style, will most likely be converted into a Catholic chapel.
This satellite campus will be the first Catholic liberal arts college in Massachusetts in a very long time.

Yesterday, the Massachusetts Legislature voted to override Gov. Charlie Baker's veto of an unconstitutional pay raise for elected officials and judges. No legislator in either chamber changed their vote from the initial passage to sustain the veto. This pay raise violates the 118th Amendment to the Massachusetts Constitution, which states:
The base compensation as of January first, nineteen hundred and ninety-six, of members of the general court shall not be changed except as provided in this article. As of the first Wednesday in January of the year two thousand and one and every second year thereafter, such base compensation shall be increased or decreased at the same rate as increases or decreases in the median household income for the commonwealth for the preceding two year period, as ascertained by the governor.
In another words, the Legislature cannot vote themselves a raise. To get away with the bill's passage is because judges also got a raise, which cannot be overturned via a ballot initiative because the Judiciary is one of the forbidden topics from ballot questions.
Since the Democratic Party has been in charge of the Legislature since 1958, this is what you get for having no real opposition: TYRANNY. The Democrats are now a bunch of communists and marxists who don't care about American values.
TIME TO VOTE OUT EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR AND ACCEPTS THE PAY RAISE IN 2018.

Bishop Robert J. McManus of Worcester issued the following statement yesterday regarding President Trump's Executive Order on Immigration:
It is hard to imagine an American alive today who does not include immigrants to this country in his or her family tree, ancestors who were in search of a better life, or escaping political or religious persecution, or fleeing the ravages of war. It is particularly this last case that is most disturbing in light of President Trump’s Executive Order addressing the U.S. refugee admissions program and migration to the United States. In light of that, I add my voice to that of the USCCB’s chair of the Committee on Migration, Bishop Joe S. Vásquez of Austin, Texas, who issued the following statement: “We strongly disagree with the Executive Order’s halting refugee admissions. We believe that now more than ever, welcoming newcomers and refugees is an act of love and hope. We will continue to engage the new administration, as we have all administrations for the duration of the current refugee program, now almost forty years. We will work vigorously to ensure that refugees are humanely welcomed in collaboration with Catholic Charities without sacrificing our security or our core values as Americans, and to ensure that families may be reunified with their loved ones.”Our own local experience has been one of great success in assisting refugees from Syria and many other countries through Catholic Charities, working in collaboration with the U.S. government. Let us hope and pray and voice our support for efforts to rectify this policy, while respecting the right of every nation to protect its borders and its citizens. As Christians we cannot ignore the Gospel imperative to welcome the stranger in our midst, especially those whose dignity as children of God is not being respected. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, (# 2241) our faith encourages us to welcome all people “in search of the security and means of livelihood which they cannot find in their country of origin.” As our Holy Father, Pope Francis said to our nation’s leaders in September 2015, “…if we want security, let us give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities. The yardstick we use for others will be the yardstick which time will use for us.”
Obviously I disagree with His Excellency. I believe his motive for opposition is that the Christians in ISIS territory (Iraq and Syria) are also barred from traveling to the United States during the period of pause and evaluation.
To be clear, this ban has nothing to do with religion (as the radical left thinks it solely targets Muslims), but to protect U.S. citizens and other lawful immigrants against potential terrorist attacks. The seven countries with the ban are the most terror and war-torn countries on the planet right now, and with the exception of those already on Green Cards, we have no clue who these people are. Immigration policy has been a bipartisan broken disaster over the past 15 to 20 years, and this is the first step to fixing it. Ultimately, Congress must rewrite the immigration laws that only allow the best and brightest into the U.S., and have a merit-based system.
For those who didn't know, the Constitution does not fully apply to non citizens. The President has the right to ban anyone who is not a U.S. citizen from entering the country, according to a 1952 law, with no reason whatsoever. The clause in Article VI of the Constitution regarding the ban on religious tests only applies to holding public office and has nothing to do with anything else.
The Bishop's job is the salvation of souls of his flock and not to be an immigration activist. Clearly, the bishops of Massachusetts are joining in Attorney General Maura "Hold It" Healey's bogus lawsuit, since they stood silent against men using the ladies room.
If you happen to still go to one of Bishop McManus' Novus Ordo parishes, don't even bother giving to the annual Partners in Charity fundraiser. His Excellency should be focusing on who is physically present in his diocese.

America's oldest Traditional Catholic newspaper, The Remnant, has penned an open letter asking the Trump Administration to investigate the Vatican's alliance with the Democratic Party et. al. The letter, which will appear in the next print edition, can be viewed online here.
I do support such an investigation by the U.S. Government at this time, especially when the abdication of Benedict XVI was fishy, and a priest in Colombia was suspended by his bishop recently for preaching the truth on Catholic Holy Matrimony.
If a criminal investigation confirms that Jorge Bergoglio is not the legitimate Successor of Peter (a.k.a. an antipope), he should be captured by the Special Forces and brought to justice just like Bin Laden. I am pretty sure a Traditional Catholic President would do so without hesitation.

While there was peaceful transfer of power in Washington, D.C. this afternoon, I am disturbed to learn that another U.S. bishop has banned the use of the Latin language in both the Traditional and Novus Ordo forms of Mass. A letter uncovered by several Catholic blogs from Bishop Daniel Malloy of Rockford, Illinois to diocesan priests dated January 11, 2017 not only requires his explicit permission to say the TLM in private, but has banned the renovation/restoration of churches to include centrally-located tabernacles and communion rails.
The late Bishop Thomas Doran must be rolling in his grave. The former diocese where TAN Books was located before being purchased by Saint Benedict Press of Charlotte, North Carolina, was a friend of Tradition. One note is that Benedict XVI appointed Bishop Malloy in 2012. 😠
