Yes, that's right! 

The first Pontifical High Mass said by a New England bishop in his own diocese in at least 50 years! 😃🙏⚓

Please go if you can, especially if you live in New Hampshire or near the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts.

How did Catholicism become a 1%er religion?

Today, on the 2017th birthday of Our Lord Jesus Christ, one seriously must ask, how did the Church He founded, the Roman Catholic Church, become a one-percenter religion, both religiously and financially? 

I. Religious Piety

Today, only about one percent of the Faithful who actually bother to faithfully attend Sunday Mass have access to the Traditional Latin Mass or an Eastern Rite Divine Liturgy in communion with the Catholic Church. On this issue alone, anyone who makes an effort to drive to a TLM is considered an elitist, even though they are financially poor like yours truly. 

II. Financially Prosperous

Historically in the USA, most Catholics resided in Southern New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island), the Mid-Atlantic states, the Midwest (Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri), Southern Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Catholics historically, until the late 1960s, were 80-20% affiliated with the Democratic Party and voted such because the party used to stand for the working poor. With the exceptions of Teddy Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge (thanks to his Catholic constituents in Mass.), and Dwight Eisenhower, it's estimated that no Republican won the Catholic popular vote for President until Richard Nixon's 1968 election, where the Catholic vote began to decide Presidential elections. Hence, Ronald Reagan's two electoral landslides were aided by pro-life lunchpail Catholic Democrats. (Coolidge, Eisenhower, and Reagan were the last Republicans to win the electoral votes from Massachusetts, all in winning efforts; Mass. solidly voted Republican for President from Lincoln to Coolidge, with the exception of Grover Cleveland, until Al Smith ran in 1928, losing because he was Catholic.) 

Today, the Democratic Party is all about the filth in Hollywood, sexual freedom, and infantile behavior, yet still many Catholics of prime age are registered with that party and vote for abortion et. al. Most of them are your typical Novus Ordoians with $$$. Some of them even won't keep their "Holiday" decorations up after today, while persisting that Christmas is about family and helping others with presents. 

Christmas is not about the presents. I know the Three Magi gave offerings to the Newborn King, but HE is the reason for the Season, not your family. Nobody is required to grant anyone a gift on Jesus' birthday. Many of the deplorables (including yours truly) who voted for President Trump cannot afford gifts to begin with. Yet, America's gift to the people this Christmas is as follows: 

These tax cuts are expected to put more people back to work. But 2018 will be a very intense, and perhaps violent year in Massachusetts, thanks to our elected officials who mock the President on a regular basis. As a Catholic still stuck in Mass., discrimination against me will continue by those in authority. Considering the disturbing exposures of the previous administration, if it weren't for the Electoral College I wouldn't be alive to write this message today! 

While my position on taxation is a flat tax (everyone pays same percentage) with very few credits, this plan is acceptable to me. 

Merry Christmas!

Gloria In Excelsis Deo!

Cardinal Law dead at age 86

Bernard Cardinal Law, the disgraced Archbishop of Boston (1984-2002) who presided over the Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal, died early this morning in Rome at the age of 86. 

Whatever you think of him as the head of Boston Catholics during his tenure, he was appointed Archbishop of Boston to clean up the homosexual clergy after the previous two Archbishops, Richard Cardinal Cushing (1944-70) and Humberto Cardinal Medeiros (1970-84) knowingly ordained homosexual men to the priesthood. In Cushing's case, he ordained them (with help of the auxiliary bishops) in the Tridentine Rite as he never said the New Mass, while selling-out publicly on allowing Boston Catholics to use contraception. 

Has Catholicism improved after Law's resignation (to escape from the Suffolk County District Attorney's office and the Massachusetts State Police, to boot) fifteen years ago this month? The basic answer is NO. New England (with the exception of some cells in New Hampshire and Southwestern Connecticut) is ground-zero for Catholicism, and increasingly pagan and anti-American. During Cardinal Law's tenure, and during the year I was born, Massachusetts was a majority Catholic state at 52%. Today it's more like 35% and shrinking, with more and more people becoming pagan and converting to Islam. 

At least in Cardinal Law's chancery, the laymen employed were pro-life and orthodox. Cardinal O'Malley's "Pastoral Center" is an adjunct for today's radicalized Democratic Party and everything against President Trump. 

There was absolutely no excuse for failure of Archdiocesan officials under Cardinal Law's episcopate to report known crimes to the police. 

The real losers, besides those who were victims of the perverts, are today's surviving orthodox Catholics in Massachusetts who are currently discriminated against by the Church, state, and society for their beliefs.

Repeal the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Last night's very close upset win by Democrat Doug Jones over favorite Judge Roy Moore  in the special election for U.S. Senator from Alabama was manufactured by Mitch McConnell and his Establishment minions. Since Moore is a constitutionalist, a Christian, etc., he is not allowed to sit as a Republican in the United States Senate, according to Majority Leader McConnell. 

The accusations of sexual abuse and underage dating (which were not really abuse and totally normal in Southern folklore over 40 years ago) were manufactured, conveniently, when the ballot finalized by law. The yearbook signature was forged. 

Doug Jones didn't win, Mitch McConnell did. He's willing to risk the GOP majority (now 51-49) to the party that has an anti-God, anti-American, and anti-life agenda. If they win the Senate back next fall they'll make Federal Law the right for men to use the ladies room (which I think Mitch would be okay with?), open borders, and Medicare paying for sex-change operations. 

Since the other Senators aren't from Alabama, they had no business interfering in that state's election. The Washington Post had no business spreading lies that couldn't be proven in such short timeframe. 

It's time for the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to be repealed, and the election of United States Senators given back to the authorities that the Founding Fathers granted this task: the state legislatures. At least the Republican Alabama Legislature could've found someone else who has no dirt just like Judge Moore (if you alone consider defending the Ten Commandments as dirt).

Bad news and Good News

I. Good News: President Trump declares Jerusalem the Capital of Israel, will move U.S. Embassy there (anti-Semites hate this). 

II. Bad News: Signature Drive to Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortion Fails

Thanks to the pro-choice "Catholic" bishops of Massachusetts, the signature drive for a Constitutional Amendment that would've put the decision to fund abortions with your tax dollars in the hands of the Legislature, failed by about 7,000 signatures. Cardinal O'Malley of Boston and Bishop McManus of Worcester did modify their signature bans from church property, but it was too late. Organizer Attorney Tom Harvey plans to try again in 2019.  (New Boston Post

III. Good News: Pastor Scott Lively to primary Gov. Charlie Baker!

Evangelical Pastor and Constitutional lawyer Scott Lively will seek the GOP nomination against RINO incumbent Gov. Charlie Baker. In 2014, Pastor Lively ran as an independent and got about 1% of the vote. He actually upholds the real Catholic Social Teachings and isn't a Catholic. The Springfield resident is truly conservative, something Chicken Charlie and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito (someone who should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church) isn't. Pray that he will actually make the primary ballot and that the MassGOP doesn't pull the shenanigans on what they did to Mark Fisher last time around!

"Sleazy Stan" to take a month's vacation from Mass. Senate Presidency; Dems. don't deserve control next year

“If you really think about the decision-making of a 60-year-old man who is having a relationship with a 19-year-old, you really have to question his decision-making prowess to begin with. So I think that we have a Senate president who is unable to make decisions as it relates to his husband.”

-State Rep. Jim Lyons (R-Andover), on WRKO's The Kuhner Report, Dec. 4, 2017

Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) has decided to take a four month leave of absence pending the investigation of the homosexual abuse by his husband (who's young enough to be his grandson) Bryon Hefner. Apparently, it was Mr. Hefner who was influencing the most left-wing radical legislative agenda in Massachusetts history ever, including the Bathroom Bill, the obscene and unconstitutional pay raises for legislators, the graduated income tax amendment that will be on the 2018 ballot, sanctuary cities/state, and the ongoing fake criminal justice omnibus that tries 18 year-olds as juveniles and legalizes sex with 12-year-olds. 

As the head of the upper chamber of the (once) Great and General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Senator Rosenberg is solely responsible for any bill that reaches the Senate floor. He also holds the gavel in all joint sessions of the Legislature (including those to approve proposals for Constitutional Amendments).

During his vacation, Majority Leader Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester), 83, will be President Pro Tempore. (This is no surprise since she's #2 anyway.) It is Mrs. Chandler who spearheaded the recent legislation allowing over-the-counter birth control pills signed by Gov. Baker, which now resulted in a vending machine with the Pill at Brandeis University, sponsored by a $5000 grant from Planned Parenthood. She also takes the long drive to the State House on purpose to get an extra $5000 travel expense (which also violates the state constitution). 

Sleazy Stan's scandal clearly shows that the Democrats, who've held total control of the state legislature since 1958 (aka more wholesome times), don't deserve the majority at the 2018 elections! 

Ideally, Senator Rosenberg should resign from the Senate altogether immediately, but apparently he needs to collect his salary. In event he doesn't seek re-election, his seat will most likely be filled by another ultra-liberal Democrat because it's the Amherst area, and the U.Mass people will vote for someone who wants free college. But for most of the state every other State Senator must be put on notice! 

There are 40 state senators because originally, at the time of the American Revolution, Massachusetts was only divided into 4o municipalities (versus 351 today), and originally the State Senators were elected by the Boards of Selectmen in each town, not by popular vote. Eventually when new towns were incorporated the senatorial districts included multiple towns, where the selectmen from the towns within the district elected the State Senators to Beacon Hill. (Like the U.S. Senate originally represented the state capitols.) Eventually with the erection of more towns popular elections of State Senators were instituted in the 1820's from drawn districts based on equal population. Today, with a population of about 7 million, Massachusetts State Senators represent approximately 175,000 people. 

If you want run for the Massachusetts State Senate next year, papers may be taken out next month from the Secretary of State's office. Legally you must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years old, and resided in Massachusetts for 5 years prior to your election. If you want to try to overturn the longstanding Democrat majority, 2018 is the year to do it! 

To close, apparently this is the moonbats' national anthem:

UPDATE 12/6/2017: Republican Dean Tran won the open State Senate seat in the Leominster/Fitchburg area yesterday in a special election. His victory now gives the GOP 7 seats out of 40.

Plan to attend Mass two consecutive days this Christmas

There are 24 days until Christmas. This year, for the first time since 2006, Christmas Eve (Dec. 24th) falls on Sunday and Christmas Day (Dec. 25th) falls on Monday. 

For those who live in Novus Ordo land, it's often the fact for most Holy Days of Obligation that are not transferred to the closest Sunday are dispensed if the holy day falls on a Saturday or Monday. In the Traditional Latin Mass practice these are still obligatory Mass attendance days (unless you're impeded for a grave reason), so whenever the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8th) falls on Saturday or Monday, for example, it's always observed as a Holy Day of Obligation. (It's next Friday.) 

However, in both the Tridentine and Novus Ordo rites, Christmas Day is never dispensed or transferred to the closest Sunday. Hence, you have to attend Mass on both Sunday the 24th and Monday the 25th. Sundays are obligatory regardless, along with Christmas Day. Not doing so are mortal sins. 

Even further in the Tridentine Missal, "the Vigil of Christmas, which, if occurs on the 4th Sunday of Advent, takes the place of that Sunday, excluding even a commemoration of it;" [Code of Rubrics 30a, AAS LII (1960)]. 

So when you attend the TLM on Sunday, Dec. 24th, unless your diocese the religious superiors whom you are served by have a particular ordo saying otherwise, you will hear the Mass of Christmas Eve, which is said in purple vestments. (The Novus Ordo Christmas Eve [not Midnight] Mass prescribes white vestments, and in many parishes is a kiddie pageant.)

This also clarifies that if for some reason your regular TLM is at 5PM, it WILL NOT count towards your Christmas Day obligation, just your Sunday obligation. If you see the priest wearing purple vestments should tell you right away he's not saying the Mass of the feast, but only the vigil. If you attend the Christmas Midnight Mass, it will begin technically on Monday morning, not Sunday late night, so it's not a Sunday Mass (unless Christmas falls on Sunday like it did last year). If you play hooky from regular Sunday Mass on the 24th thinking you can double-dip at Christmas Midnight Mass, think again 24 days in advance. 

Weather permitting, plan on attending Holy Mass two consecutive days this Christmas Eve and Day. Jesus is the reason for the season. 

A Note about Nuptial Masses on Saturday afternoons

While discussing this particular topic, Jeff Ostrowski of Corpus Christi Watershed, states in a recent blogpost "That is why one can attend a Wedding (“Nuptial Mass”) on Saturday evening and fulfill one’s Sunday obligation, although I believe such a Mass cannot begin too early in the afternoon."

Mr. Ostrowski is incorrect here, because Nuptial Masses that take place at 4 or 5PM on Saturdays are considered private Votive Masses (of the I Class in the TLM), and since the Mass of the Sunday is not used (even in the Novus Ordo), it doesn't fulfill your Sunday obligation. On the flip side, parishes which schedule Saturday Vigil Masses at 4PM (which in theory fulfill your Sunday obligation, but are often abused) are taking away a time slot for a Nuptial Mass, which never ever fulfills your Sunday duty on any day but Sunday! 

Normally, Catholics cannot marry on Sundays without permission from the Bishop. If this indult is granted, the couple would be married before the parish's Sunday Mass while they would kneel through the Mass of the Sunday, not the Nuptial Mass. But the Bishop may grant permission for the Nuptial Mass on Sunday at a separate time, especially if your wedding date is a Sunday with green vestments. This Sunday Mass would indeed fulfill your Sunday obligation.

Anti-Catholic, anti-Christian, anti-Trump bigotry in Mass. continues with mandatory free birth control

RINO Gov. Charlie Baker signed the bill mandating free birth control pills in Massachusetts yesterday as another step towards nullification and total disrespect of the Federal Government and his own party's platform. 

The bill is even worse that it seems, as it allows the Pill to be dispensed over-the-counter without a prescription, just like an aspirin. Expect more young women on the Pill to get breast cancer in the future and die young courtesy of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

Several studies show the Pill causes the higher risk for breast cancer. My mother had successful Stage 0 breast cancer surgery last week and is planning on the next phase of treatment. She has been sick for a long time, and claims at one time temporary took birth control (Since she has bad memory and this was a long time ago before she met my father I'm not sure if it's accurate; doing so would disqualify her from ecclesiastical burial...). 

Ladies, if you are on or at at-one time took the Pill, don't complain when you get diagnosed with breast cancer. Not doing your homework not only gives you bad grades, but can ruin your life. 

To that end, if you are a registered Democrat or anyone else who supports a "woman's right to choose", don't bother sitting in the pews with real Catholics at Sunday Mass until you are reformed.

Dr. Michelle Cretella: Transgenderism "is child abuse"

Dr. Michelle Cretella is the best pediatrician in the world, no questions asked. While she currently doesn't practice clinically, she is President of the American College of Pediatricians, the pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-family counterpart to the American Academy of Pediatricians, which went gay several years ago. Below is a video from the TFP Student Action YouTube interviewing her at home, explaining that transgenderism is mental illness and must be treated as such:

Sadly, unless much needed reforms to academia are implemented, a young adult who thinks like Dr. Cretella can't be admitted to medical school today, never mind obtaining a residency or medical license.

Cardinal Sean raises taxes on RCAB parishes

His Eminence, Sean Cardinal O'Malley, OFM Cap., Archbishop of Boston, issued a decree effective Thanksgiving Day that raises the cathedraticum parishes pay to the chancery (or in politically-correct terms, the "Pastoral Center" at 66 Brooks Drive in Braintree). The taxation will be done in three tiers, in summary:

Base Revenue

All regular offertory, which includes "grand annual" collections, remain taxed at 10% at parishes without schools under their auspice, but those parishes that operate schools will receive a discount at 5.3%. (Schools that are run by religious orders, the Archdiocese directly, or by independent boards of trustees are not parochial, and are not subject to this tax.) 

The Catholic Appeal assessment will increase from 7.5% to 8%. In Boston, like many dioceses today, if parishioners of a particular parish don't voluntarily pledge the parish's designated goal by the end of the annual pledge drive, the parish receives a bill for the balance. 

Net Rental Income

Some parishes rent space because they are able to. The Archdiocese will now tax net rental income at 18% from parishes without schools and 4.7% from those who operate parochial schools. 

Net Proceeds from Real Estate Sales

Whenever a parish sells real estate, they will be able to keep only 82% of the net proceeds, with the other 18% going to Braintree. According to this interpretation, if a religious order is the legal owner of a parish that has parochial status, they'll have to pay 18% at closing if they wish to sell property! 

Basically, these actions might not be permissive under Canon 1263, which states:

The diocesan bishop has the right to impose a moderate tax on public juridic persons subject to his authority; this tax, which should be proportionate to their income, is for diocesan needs and may be imposed only after hearing the diocesan finance council and the presbyteral council he can impose an extraordinary and moderate tax on other physical and juridic persons only in cases of grave necessity and under the same conditions with due regard for particular laws and customs attributing even more significant rights to him. (Emphasis added)

The term "moderate" in this case would what I support civilly, which is a flat tax. Canon Law clearly requires a flat tax, yet Cardinal Sean is giving breaks to parishes with parochial schools (which are scarce these days), whom don't require pupils to be practicing Catholics. There is no provision in Canon Law for a capital gains tax, which is what the third tier essentially is. 

Ideally, parishes should not be taxed more than 10%. The extra 8% (which is guaranteed, so much for charity) goes to activities that have nothing to do with Catholicism, such as "Catholic" Charities aiding illegals and enemies of the United States. Because most Catholic dioceses aren't orthodox or traditional there's no good reason for an individual to donate to these annual pledge drives. 

In Medieval times, out of a parish's 10%, 1/3 went to the chancery, 1/3 went to the cathedral's maintenance, and 1/3 went to the poor. Dioceses lived within their means of Faithful, and only poor practicing Catholics should be first priority for Catholic Charities. Same with the state, which should only live within the means of it's citizenry, with only welfare going to those citizens who truly need help.

Catholic radio stations don't catechize, BOLD sermons do

The Archdiocese of Boston has issued a pamphlet entitled Rediscovering Catholic Faith in the Boston Region, a fundraising tool for the Catholic (i.e. Novus Ordo) radio station WQOM-AM 1060. There are a few striking passages enclosed, which I will selectively quote and comment in red:

"Catholics in the Greater Boston Area and surrounding communities are incredibly fortunate to reside in such a vibrant, flourishing community." 

The Boston area is vibrant for everything but Catholicism; real Catholics are discriminated by the Archdiocese. Anyone who is patriotic is discriminated by society-at-large. Wait until the graduated income tax passes next year and a third-world dump is established. 

"The opportunity to form the next generation of Catholics is here -- in one of the most unique cities in the world where there is a crossroad of elite universities and innovative businesses, educating and bringing together some of the best minds in the world." 

Why Boston exclusively? Why in an area where most baptized Catholics don't care?

"Boston is also a place where people share their ideas and philosophies, and it is important to make certain the Catholic point of view is offered, reviewed, and understood by the community - Catholics and non-Catholics alike." 

"Catholic" in this case means Novus Ordo and whatever Bergoglio says. 

"While nearly half of residents in Massachusetts identify themselves as Catholic, less than 20% regularly attend Sunday Mass." 

This is incorrect. The number is more like 37%, so out of about 7 million residents, 2,590,000 are baptized Catholics who've not publicly renounced the Faith. If 20% of them attend Sunday Mass regularly, that would amount to 518,000. The popular figure in the Archdiocese of Boston alone is about 2 million, so no more than 400,000 Catholics attend church in the Greater Boston area, which seems like a stretch. Only a handful attend the Tridentine Mass. 

Most persons, including Catholics, do not get their religious instruction and guidance on the radio. They get them from BOLD sermons. Until priests' sermons become bold and plain on dogma, Faith and morals aren't going to improve. 

According to the online programing schedule, this radio station doesn't have orthodox programing. No Mike Church, no Magnificat Radio affiliations, no Reconquest with Brother Andre Marie, no Heaven's Peace Plan from the late Fr. Nicholas Gruner, nothing. 

If these guys think they're going to beat Rush Limbaugh, Ben Shapiro, Jeff Kuhner, Howie Carr, and Mark Levin (a guy who undeservingly is banned in Boston), they're crazy. Catholics listen to these hosts too.

Massachusetts bans all semi-automatic guns and general gun maintenance

This post is dedicated to the memory of Bill Kelly, the founder of Kelly Financial Services, who died suddenly of a heart attack and was buried this past week. He was a JFK Democrat and Vietnam Veteran. (Our 35th President was an NRA member and pro-Second Amendment.) Requiescat in Pace. 

Yesterday, while performing gubernatorial duties while Charlie Baker was hiding in California trying to get advice on how to secede from the USA, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito signed the bill that bans all semi-automatic weapons, even those legally owned. Adding to the already very strict gun control laws of the Commonwealth, this was passed as a reactionary to the Las Vegas Massacre by lunatic Stephen Paddock, without much public input. 

The original purpose was to ban the bump stock, which is already against Federal Law, but since it was already on the books the hacks on Beacon Hill added prohibitions to ALL semi-automatic magazines and basic gun maintenance. Watch this video from Liberty Doll about why guns must be oiled to be safe:

As a follow-up from my previous post, it's pretty clear that the Baker Administration is prioritizing pointing fingers at the Trump White House and genuflecting to Democrat-Controlled Legislature (since 1958), which is now firmly Communist. Massachusetts is not going to change for the better unless the Republicans (and any independents who caucus with them) win at-least one of the chambers of the Legislature next year! 

Next up, phony criminal justice reform...

A few notes for the Feast of Christ the King

Please read my statement regarding my personal situation. I have it on a link from a third-party because I don't want it directly posted in it's entirety for obvious reasons. 

Also, I can certify at this time that Massachusetts is not a safe place for any decent person out there, even those born and raised here. I've threatened to leave with the clothes off my back if the graduated income tax passes; now the commie crooks who work under the idolatrous Golden Dome (some alloy Bulfinch didn't prescribe in his plans for the State House) want to place electronic toll gantries statewide. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!

Please feel free to share this "Want Ad" with your friends; we need real patriots in Mass. to run for the State Legislature next year...

PLEASE help the Saint Benedict Center in Still River expand their monastery

The Saint Benedict Center in Still River, Mass., the monastic home to the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, needs your financial help in trying to expand their monastery. 

The Center is home to one of the longest-continuous locations for the Traditional Latin Mass in the United States and the only thoroughly-Catholic school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Immaculate Heart of Mary School, serving Grades 1-12 and has record enrollment this academic year. 

The Brothers and Sisters signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement this past Spring to purchase 77 acres from a farmer who recently passed away, whose family can no longer upkeep the property. According to their Oct. 12th announcement, they need $11,509 to make the first stage of escrow, which will be doubled with a grant from the Father Sipperly Foundation. They need to make this goal by the end of this month or they will not be able to expand their monastery to accommodate for more vocations to their monastery et. al.! 

The ultimate goal is $1.75 million to complete the sale. 

This monastery is the only Catholic entity within the Diocese of Worcester that actually deserves your tithe money, so please give what you can! If you are unable to visit the Saint Benedict Center, you may purchase items from their True Devotionals web shop, donate via their Go Fund Me campaign, or mail a check payable to:

A special treat for the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, I share this week's Remnant TV video of the Mike & Chris Show (The Remnant Editor Michael Matt and Correctio Filialis co-signatory Christopher Ferrara, Esq.) taped in the Catacomb. Enjoy!

When the President made the rightful comments that NFL players should be cut from their teams for allowing players to seat their rear-ends of the bench during the National Anthem, both the League and the Players Union decided to have a league-wide sanctioned protest. 

Unfortunately, 12 Patriots players took a knee before yesterday's game, with the support of longtime friend of the President, Bob Kraft. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers decided not to be present on the field during the Anthem to avoid scandal, while at the London Game players kneeled for the "Star-Spangled Banner" while they stood for "God Save the Queen." (If they knelt for the UK Anthem Theresa May would make sure the game would be cancelled, I'm sure.) 

You see, this is what the NFL under Globalist Goodell, who makes $40 million in salary, look like. Spoiled ungrateful brats making more $$$ than their non-athletic peers ever will. 

Wherever the National Anthem et. al. are played, unless you're in a wheelchair, YOU HAVE ABSOULTELY NO RIGHT TO SIT DOWN! 

Anyone who sits during the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the school day needs to be reprimanded as well, especially at the junior high and high school levels. 

In either event, I am very disappointed that Congress will not propose and send to the states for ratification this or a similarly-worded Constitutional Amendment:

§1. The United States shall have a code on the proper dignity of the Flag for military and civilian usage. 

§2. Civilians who are citizens of the United States shall stand upright and place their right hands across their hearts for:

(a)  The National Anthem and any other auxiliary songs of patriotic nature as declared by an Act of Congress or the President;

(b)  The Pledge of Allegiance, which shall include the words: 

“I pledge allegiance 
to the Flag 
of the United States 
of America 
and to the Republic 
for which it stands 
one nation 
under God 
with liberty 
and justice 
for all.”

(c)  A moment of silence in conjunction with the Flag;
(d)  The playing of “Taps”;
(e)  The hoisting and lowering of the Flag on a flagpole;
(f)   The passer-by display of the Flag during a parade. 

§3.  No person shall be denied to express devotion to the Flag while in the United States, which includes saluting in section two, the public display, and the affixment of a pin or patch on regular clothing on the left side of the person above the heart. 

§4.  Congress and state legislatures shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation, which shall be irrevocable.

Dubia remains unanswered after one year

Today marks the anniversary of the Dubia towards Amoris Laetitia (lit. "The Joy of Sex"), asking whether or not the document actually states that adulterers and divorcees can actually receive the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. 

Since then, two of the four Dubia Brothers, Cardinals Caffarra and Meisner have died within two months of each other recently, while Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller are still living. 

Pope Francis refuses to answer the Dubia, and after one year elapsed, it's time for Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller to finally issue the formal correction to Amoris

Post-conciliar Popes refusing to answer Dubiae is nothing new. Archbishop Lefebvre and Bishop Castro Mayer never received a response from Pope John Paul II regarding the signature Vatican II errors of the New Mass, Ecumenism, Collegiality, and a perverted Catholic view of Religious Liberty (not the same as the government guaranteeing your right to practice your faith). This resulted in the 1986 Assisi Meetings sponsored by the Vatican and eventually the 1988 Econe Episcopal Consecrations for the SSPX. 

Most recently, Bergoglio's new bull, Magnum Principum, which takes effect October 1st, rewrites Canon 838 and essentially allows bishop's conferences to write their own missals. There's also talk of an "International Curia," whatever that means. In either event, if Francis is truly indeed the canonically elected Pope, this means the end of Catholicity (universality) of the Catholic Church. Our only safeguard right now is Benedict XVI still being alive.

Please sign Massachusetts Ad Hoc Pro-Life Coalition to Mass. Bishops to Stop Betraying Pro-Life Catholics et. al.

I've signed the CitizenGO petition sponsored by the Massachusetts Ad Hoc Pro-Life Coalition (Catholic Action League, MassResistance, and Operation Rescue Boston) addressed to the Massachusetts Catholic Bishops to quit betraying pro-lifers, by primarily recinding the signature drive ban on church property issued this past summer. You don't have to be Catholic to sign, just supportive.

If Congress passes DACA I will suffer, thanks to the Catholic bishops

Following-up from my last post, there is bi-partisan support in Congress for making DACA permanent. If amnesty is granted to these 2 million persons (both the "kids" and their wrongful parents), there will never be a chance I will able to get a real job, thanks to the bishops of the Catholic Church. 

Steve Bannon was correct to say on last Sunday's 60 Minutes that immigration "is not doctrine." The bishops are profiteering on settling illegal immigrants and refugees just to keep the pew counts up, which in the long-run will not work. Most of the bishops are not only usurpers and apostates for not doing their episcopal duties like saying Pontifical High Masses et. al., but most of the U.S. bishops are anti-American and traitors for NOT preserving the laws and customs of the United States. 

As someone who has been not allowed to participate in today's society and workforce for being a real Catholic, DACA would end the chances for millions of native-born Americans and I at the things Americans have done for generations.

If President Trump signs DACA he will get primaried, I guarantee it.

Why in the world would the GOP put true marriage, defunding Planned Parenthood, repeal of Obamacare, the Wall, and tax reform in their platform and  cannot act with full control of the Federal Government? Because they use Christians, conservatives, and  constitutionalists as props for votes and once they're the governing party they are do-nothings. The Establishment Republicans only care about the cheap labor and open borders, while the Democrats simply hate America. 

At this time I don't think starting a new conservative third-party is viable without actually having clear direction. Another major consideration is Bernie Sanders' most diehard supporters are petitioning him to run as an independent for President in 2020. If the Bern decides to proceed, then we'll be forced to vote Republican again, regardless if it's the incumbent or a totally new ticket. But either way DACA will cause a GOP primary challenge by someone who's actually conservative and is not bought-off by anyone. As it turned-out my endorsement and protest vote for Rick Santorum in the primary were actually the right things to do!

DACA scrapped, Mass. liberals don't care for Real Americans

This morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the unconstitutional DACA program, which gave amnesty and work permits to 800,000 illegals (known as DREAMERS) who were thrown over the border as children by their parents, will end and that broad enforcement and deportations will take effect in six months (March 2018) unless Congress passes such amnesty otherwise. (There is bi-partisan opposition in Congress to the Administration's position on this issue.)

Here in Massachusetts, our incompetent state Attorney General Maura Healey is filing a lawsuit against the administration to protect the 8,000 DREAMERS living in Mass., with the blessing of RINO Gov. Charlie Baker. To make matters worse, she was quoted at a Labor Day Breakfast yesterday in my local newspaper this morning that she is working with the Archdiocese of Boston to protect illegal immigrants.

You heard that right: Cardinal Sean is working with the well-known lesbian Attorney General to protect illegals from deportation! 

This must explain why none of the Massachusetts Catholic bishops openly opposed the Bathroom Bill; they support Maura Healey's infamous quote to "Hold It." 

The only religious organizations in Mass. openly against men using the ladies room are the few Evangelical Protestants and storefront churches. I don't know if the AG was ever baptized a Catholic, but if she was, a serious bishop would excommunicate her et. al. on several grounds. 

As so far as immigration is concerned, it's not the role of state government, county governments, municipal governments, nor the Catholic Church to dictate the foreign policy of the United States by the constitutionally elected administration. 

What doesn't help is that about 60% of my neighbors in my state voted for treason last fall. Instead of helping out real Catholic Americans who are orthodox (native-born and those who spent thousands on immigration attorneys), the bishops would rather see amnesty to those who broke our laws and give them scholarships to Catholic schools and colleges. 

Without a doubt people like myself have been blackmailed by our state government and Catholic bishops. If the bishops cared about the education and welfare of their own subjects in their diocese (who are in good standing, practicing, and lawfully present), then low-income Catholic kids would receive scholarships to Catholic school regardless of race or ethnicity. Catholic Charities would be for Catholics only. 

Congressionally, if a bill is passed within six months with veto-proof majorities, and President Trump vetoes, an override would be the end of our law and order in terms of immigration and naturalization. To make matters worse, as I stated above, there's bi-partisan support for amnesty for the DREAMERS. If the Republican Party were united and serious about saving this nation, they, with the majority rule in both chambers of Congress, would declare war on the treasonous D-party and their associates. The only loyal opposition are the minor parties who can't make the debate stage right now (Libertarian, Green, Constitution Parties, and those not registered with a party.)

Saturday's violent counter-protests show why Bostonians must vote Bob Cappucci for Mayor this fall

Bostonians should be ashamed of their Mayor and city government based on what happened last Saturday. "Mohammed" Marty Walsh tried revoke a permit for the small Free Speech rally to use the Boston Common's Parkham Bandstand for a group nobody really cared about. But Mayor Walsh doesn't believe in the First Amendment and free speech, but instead incites 30,000 to 40,000 people to protest a group that had no affiliation with the previous week's Charlottesville riots, trying to shut it down. 

The riots could have been prevented as only 33 people were arrested. Mayor Walsh and Gov. "Chicken" Charlie Baker (RINO) could have justifiably ordered excessive force, but they were both in favor of the protestors. 

As I mentioned in my May 26th post, Bostonians actually have the chance to elect Bob Cappucci, a retired BPD officer and former Boston School Committee member who is pro-life, pro-American, pro-veterans, and truly BOSTON STRONG. He will not  allow illegals to roam around the city under his watch! 

For more info please visit his website

Primary day is Tuesday Sept. 26th. If Bob finishes in 1st or 2nd place (out of 4 candidates) he makes the November 7th General Election ballot. If you have any family or friends, etc. who live and registered to vote in Boston please spread the word!

U.S. Catholic bishops partly to blame for Charlottesville, historically and presently

Last weekend's violent and deadly White Nationalist protest of the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia undoubtedly shows America is in another Civil War between patriots and domestic terrorists. Even though the original Civil War was won by the Union (North) states, we Yanks have never forcefully told the Southerners to dump their historical artifacts and (often sad) reminders of what took place. 

In the case of General Lee, he was actually a hero in the Mexican-American War and buddies with Ulysses S. Grant at one time. Due to this Congress actually voted to pardon him by posthumously restoring his U.S. citizenship back in the 1970's after the Jim Crow South was finally desegregated. 

Old State House, Boston
(Photo taken by author in 2009)
The Left is successfully removing the statues of former slave owners, including President Andrew Jackson in New Orleans (who was the General who won the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812). Who's next? George Washington? John Adams? Ben Franklin? Thomas Jefferson (the founder of the University of Virginia)? George Mason? Abraham Lincoln? 

On State Street in Boston sits the Old State House, the seat of the colonial government of Massachusetts. Now privately owned, the original exterior remains in-tact, with a lion and a unicorn on each side of the roof facade. Guess what these character symbols are? They're that of Coat of Arms of Great Britain, with the lion symbolizing England and the unicorn Wales. Yes, we fought two wars against King George III and later forgave each other permanently during the reign of Queen Victoria, but the Boston patriots who assisted in winning American Independence never dumped their former motherland's symbol. 

Now how does the Catholic hierarchy have a piece of the blame pie? It all started during the Civil War when Pope Pius IX (a Jeffersonian libertarian by today's standards) wrote a letter to Confederate President Jefferson Davis stating that the Holy See recognized the C.S.A. as a sovereign nation, despite legal slavery as one of the major topics of this "country's" existence. Once the Democratic Party regained control of the Southern states and implemented Jim Crow laws against blacks, the Catholic bishops did not fight them but instead established negro parishes to enforce segregation. Up North where most of the Catholics lived (native born and immigrant) ethnic parishes were established to help assimilate immigrants into American society. Hence, while every parish had the Traditional Latin Mass like every other English-speaking parish, these parishes were "de-facto" segregation not envisioned in Canon Law nor had any historical precedence in Catholicism. This is part of the Americanist Heresy. 

Ethnic parishes, predominately located in big and medium-sized cities, faded-out by the post-World War II Baby Boom when Catholics (like their other fellow Americans) started to build in the suburbs, which prompted the building of new parish churches without regard to race or ethnicity. 

Vatican II's allowance of native-tongue liturgies did not and still to this day make all U.S. Catholics assimilate into American culture. Ethnic parishes that had the Tridentine Mass (like all their Catholic peers worldwide) switched to scheduling Masses in the language of the ethnic group. Since many native-born white Catholics have left the Church for various reasons, the bishops have been fighting for lenient immigration laws to refill the pews with immigrants from historically Catholic countries, which hasn't been working. This explains why in the Archdiocese of Boston Mass is offered in 19 different languages besides Latin or English! 

Canon 518 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law states: 

As a general rule a parish is to be territorial, that is it embraces all the Christian faithful within a certain territory; whenever it is judged useful, however, personal parishes are to be established based upon rite, language, the nationality of the Christian faithful within some territory or even upon some other determining factor. 

Yes, unfortunately balkanization is allowed under the present Canon Law. It also doesn't help when all Catholics don't believe in the same faith and morals and don't worship the in same manner.

One Peter Five: H. received $1 million campaign donation from 2016 Peter's Pence

One Peter Five has an article suggesting that the Obama Administration forced Benedict XVI off the Papal Throne and that Peter's Pence, under Francis, gave $1 million to Hillary Clinton's campaign last year. (Ouch!) (Click here to read the article for yourself

Why am I not surprised? This seems to be the most logical thesis since the previous administration appeased Radical Islam with calling ISIS the "JV team" and the $150 billion Iran deal which will force the United States into a future war in the Middle East beyond our children's control. The current occupant in the Vatican doesn't defend the Catholic Faith and appeases Islam, along with most occupants of episcopal chairs in the West. 

With evidence gaining day-by-day, I have held the suspicion that Pope Benedict was forced out by the bogeyman, which might have been Obama of all people! 

Taking foreign donations for political campaigns are against Federal Law, period. Another reason why I refuse to give something to Peter's Pence!

Something non-traditional: Could you, the young Catholic single sweetheart, propose (with my counter of course!:)?

Today, the Feast of Saint James the Greater is also the lesser feast of Saint Christopher, my "name day," a Catholic custom often lost that often is more important than your actual birthday. St. Christopher, the patron of travels and lost persons, is not in the new calendar, which is a shame.

Tomorrow marks seven years since my first post of this blog, initially asking for a date to the Tridentine Mass on Sunday. Since then, things have turned for the worse in the Church and for me personally. Supporting God and country has cost me everything. Living in an area of the United States where over sixty percent of my peers voted for treason last year certainly doesn't help. 

Most young Catholic women under the age of 25 are not conservative politically, never mind traditional. They are sympathetic to gay "marriage" and contraception, and may support abortion in limited cases of rape and incest. They would flirt with Socialism, secularism, and atheism. Two prime examples are a couple of events that took place in the Archdiocese of Boston this month: the Steubenville East at U.Mass Lowell and an event for Hispanic Youth. Both events, while only with language differences, shared the same activities: rock concerts at the Novus Ordo and "adoration" of the Blessed Sacrament in the LifeTeen format. 

It's not the fault of these young adults who love God
and their country. 
I feel bad for today's teenage and young adult Catholics. They are being taught this is compatible with Catholic Tradition by their CCD teachers. They're chauffeured to their suburban parish church by their parents who spoil them with iPhones and iPads, and often don't treat Sunday with uttermost sanctimony. Unfortunately with most of these parents born after the New Mass cook book was issued, they don't have a clue that the TLM is a matter of Catholic dogma. 

I'm not questioning these young women and their love for God. Many of them also love their country. It's not their fault that they don't know what Catholicism looks like with doctrinal and liturgical orthodoxy. 

In either case, it might be possible that if a young woman who meets the criteria (even someone who currently attends the N.O.) who wants me and wants to practice Traditional Catholicism to email me for initiation. This might be the only way for me to survive the tyrants  up in these parts (civil, ecclesiastical, and corporate) who hate God, country, and family and want to favor bergoglios over people like me. 

There's no big secret that as a man, I am naturally attracted to the female sex. This blog clearly shows I have no priestly or religious order vocation, so the only other acceptable option for Catholics is to marry OTHER CATHOLICS. The summer season more amplifies this with more tank tops, t-shirts, and bikinis. At least I have never slept with someone and never entertained to live with someone I'm not married to!
