Reblog: Two Weeks To Flatten The World
Reposting this excellent piece by Michael Bryant at OffGuardian. Although this is a religious blog, the fact remains that all but a very few of our supposed shepherds, the Catholic bishops, spinelessly rolled over for the tyrants who ordered churches closed, even during Lent and Eastertide, for the impossible purpose of “stopping” a virus. This … Continue reading Reblog: Two Weeks To Flatten The World
How Liturgical Changes Helped Destroy the Sense of Sin
There are, of course, many examples. This is one of the more blatant ones. Here is the Collect from the TLM for today, the Fourth Sunday of Lent, followed by the Collect for today in the Novus Ordo. 1962 Missale Romanum: Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that we who for our evil deeds are … Continue reading How Liturgical Changes Helped Destroy the Sense of Sin

Fake News: Baseball is NOT Back
Quick post unrelated to the Church in particular, but definitely in service of tradition–the baseball kind. 🙂 Thanks to The Timman for raising this excellent point.
If Pitchers don’t hit, it ain’t baseball.
Period. End of story.

Victor Aubert on the Motu Proprio
An excellent commentary on the present persecution of tradition in the Roman Rite Church.
Victor Aubert, President of Academia Christiana
Since the promulgation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes, it seems that Pope Francis has decided to wage open warfare against communities committed to the traditional liturgy. The authoritarianism with which the Vatican is handling this issue has stunned many of the faithful and outside observers. At a time when practicing Catholics represent less than 5% of the population of Western Europe, such measures seem totally out of touch with reality. The West is sinking ever deeper into materialism and consumerism. Since our societies have left religion behind, Europeans have been wandering aimlessly in the realm of the absurd. The traditionalist spiritual movement is a remedy against nonsense. Is it not madness to condemn it so harshly? What can be the reasons that drive Pope Francis? Does he sincerely believe that the Church must be purified of its ritualism…

Pax Christi in Regno Christi
Blessings to you all on this momentous and joyous feast day, the Feast of Christ the King. The title of this post is an old saying I lifted from a nice little pamphlet, The Reign of Christ the King–In Both Public and Private Life, by the late, great Michael Davies.
Men must look for the Peace of Christ in the Reign of Christ. Thus it has always been, since the Protoevengelium, when the Just God, also the Merciful God, announced to the first sinners the coming of the Messias. Since the Incarnation, there is One Man Who rules us. He rules all.
As soon as we face that Truth, all will make sense. Our King lives! He has conquered death! All things are subject to Him. Let us lovingly submit to such a King, and pray for the grace to live in this life according to His sovereign law…

Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)
This has almost nothing to do with the Church or Tradition. It’s simply me taking an opportunity to complain more or less publicly about the difficulty and danger, leading to great frustration, of driving on certain Interstate highways and sharing that space with the big trucks. Don’t get me wrong: I love my food and … Continue reading Please, Someone Invent Flying Cars (Or Something)
