Ember Days are here this week , let us fast and pray extra for our Pope and the Bishops as we enter deeper into the era of Apostasy
Four times a year these quarterly periods take place around the beginnings of the four natural season Weds Friday and Saturday one meal fast & partial abstinence from meat
These Quatretemps were begun by the 1st decendents of the apostles in conjunction with thousands of converted Jewish and codified in the period from St Jerome to Pope Calixtus in 221AD mirroring the four natural seasons & Jewish fulfillment Their dates can always be remembered to follow these important season changing feasts with this old mnemonic:
Sant Crux, Lucia, Cineres, Charismata Dia Ut sit in angaria quarta sequens feria.For non-Latinists, it might be easier to just remember “Lucy, Ashes, Dove, and Cross.”
Then quarter holidays follow.
The traditional Latin rite has kept them intact to this day while various Bishops Conferences like the USCCB suppressed them in the new Rite The Ember Weds in all four seasons are dedicated penance to our Lady & alms
FSSP will have candlelit Mass in St Mary Major in Rome and Holy Innocents Ny as well.
In addition to prevention of calamity of the family members and the lands of traditional families of the Faith…….the Ember days specific to December were introduced by the Apostles as a preparation for the ordinations to occur during that month. The scriptural basis for this practice is to be found in Acts 13:2
To repress the drought of pride, and in winter for to chastise the coldness of untruth and of malice.
December they be also, and they be the fourth fastings, and in this time the herbs die, and we ought to be mortified to the world. Preservation of the land from calamity, & conversion of the Jews from their current path to hell to that of paradise
In scholastic understanding of the time continuum For our souls to be aligned to body & the passing earth that is to wit, the understanding, the will, and the mind. To this then that this fasting may attemper in us four times in the year, at each time we fast three days, to the end that the number of four may be reported to the body, and the number of three to the soul

On Observing the Ember Week Fasts by Dom Guéranger On The Fatima Center
An Apostasy is surely underway, but what is really at the root of the modernists progressivist sea change. Many are misreading signs , prophesy , empty Papal chair theories , the false Prophet and on and on…….But are those that surround him in the hierarchy around the world and poised to succeed him just the same or are many of them worse . What many do not understand is that the problem is far from a bad Pope . This Pope and his Bishops are merely attempting to implement the Vatican II Council to a greater degree than the other Conciliar Popes The majority of Catholics that have not studied the Council, it’s documents or the dozens of its support documents and books don’t see it as what it was and what it is , a former silent revolution that planted time bombs whose activations are merely being remotely triggered seemingly by remote control in every discipline Our majority does not know that the majority of the periti, theologians , Priests and specialists that advised the Council contributed to its theories in every discipline of, ecclesiastics, dogmatics, doctrine, theology, exegesis using supposed history, social teaching, and Church government have either voluntarily left the Church or been censured due to heresies , not to mention the many that were under suspicion of heresy prior to the Council and were brought back. All of their cumulative teachings proclaim in every numbered article , post , essay and paper that its objective is to insist on the deposing , abolishment , suppression and upstaging of Catholicism in its current form , meaning from the Church Fathers to the Council . The reinvention of a new Catholicism in every discipline was put forth and as they said in many a proclamation sits there in a body of teaching awaiting for the first brave Pope to implement it We are at the point in Roman Catholic history where every last established teaching prior to the Council in the disciplines of , ecclesiastics, dogmatics, doctrine, theology, Sacramental theology, exegesis , monarchy, social teaching, and Church government is very close to being “officially” outlawed

Reasons for resistance and disobedience – Under the circumstances, may the traditional Catholic resist or disobey the Pope or Bishop who orders him to conform to the progressivist Conciliar Church?
The answer is definitely, yes, he may and should resist or disobey the new teachings or customs insofar as they are clearly contrary to the previous Magisterium and worship of the Church. St. Robert Bellarmine teaches us that
“just as it is licit to resist a Pontiff who attacks the body, it is also licit to resist a Pope who attacks the soul or …. above all, who attempts to destroy the Church. I say,” St. Robert continues, “that it is licit to resist him by not doing what he orders, and by preventing his will from being executed” (1).

Yet impossible as it all me seem faithful traditional Catholics are still unshakeable in the belief of an indefectible Roman Catholic Church where the Reign Of The Kingship of Christ will be both earthly and heavenly and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph before this end
Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just: let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior. (Ps. 18: 2) The heavens show forth the glory of God: and the firmament declareth the work of His hands. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just: let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior.
Isaias 2: 2-5
In those days, the prophet Isaias said: In the last days the mountain of the Lord shall be prepared on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go, and say: Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob, and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall come forth from Sion, and the word he Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge the Gentiles and rebuke many people: and they shall turn their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into sickles. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation: neither shall they be exercised any more to war. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord our God. Hasten, we beseech Thee, O Lord, tarry not: and grant us the help of Thy heavenly power, that they who trust in Thy loving kindness may be relieved by the consolations of Thy coming. Who lives and reigns, with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
Isaias 7: 10-15
In those days the Lord spoke to Achaz, saying: Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God, either unto the depth of hell, or unto the height above. And Achaz said: I will not ask, and I will not tempt the Lord. And He said: Hear ye therefore, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to be grievous to men, that you are grievous to my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign. Behold a Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and His Name shall be called Emmanuel. He shall eat butter and honey, that He may know to refuse the evil, and to choose the good. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless His holy Name
From a letter by Saint Leo the Great, pope The mystery of our reconciliation with God
To speak of our Lord, the son of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as true and perfect man is of no value to us if we do not believe that he is descended from the line of ancestors set out in the Gospel.
Matthew’s gospel begins by setting out the genealogy of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham, and then traces his human descent by bringing his ancestral line down to his mother’s husband, Joseph. On the other hand, Luke traces his parentage backward step by step to the actual father of mankind, to show that both the first and the last Adam share the same nature.
No doubt the Son of God in his omnipotence could have taught and sanctified men by appearing to them in a semblance of human form as he did to the patriarchs and prophets, when for instance he engaged in a wrestling contest or entered into conversation with them, or when he accepted their hospitality and even ate the food they set before him. But these appearances were only types, signs that mysteriously foretold the coming of one who would take a true human nature from the stock of the patriarchs who had gone before him. No mere figure, then, fulfilled the mystery of our reconciliation with God, ordained from all eternity. The Holy Spirit had not yet come upon the Virgin nor had the power of the Most High overshadowed her, so that within her spotless womb Wisdom might build itself a house and the Word become flesh. The divine nature and the nature of a servant were to be united in one person so that the Creator of time might be born in time, and he through whom all things were made might be brought forth in their midst.
For unless the new man, by being made in the likeness of sinful humanity, had taken on himself the nature of our first parents, unless he had stooped to be one in substance with his mother while sharing the Father’s substance and, being alone free from sin, united our nature to his, the whole human race would still be held captive under the dominion of Satan. The Conqueror’s victory would have profited us nothing if the battle had been fought outside our human condition. But through this wonderful blending the mystery of new birth shone upon us, so that through the same Spirit by whom Christ was conceived and brought forth we too might be born again in a spiritual birth; and in consequence the evangelist declares the faithful to have been born not of blood, nor of the desire of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
