Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of Pius XII: A Theme Illuminating American Social History
Since the eighteenth century, generations have been schooled in utopian principles proclaiming total equality as the guarantor of liberty and justice for all. The egalitarian myth of a classless society was proffered as the unquestionable path down which mankind must travel to reach perfect social harmony. This book shatters these myths and provides a Catholic approach to the way society should be structured as seen by the Popes.

Great Sacredness and Communal Joy’ -By Casey Chalk On Crisis Magazine
What makes worship in the Catholic Church of 2019 different from everything else one experiences during the week—a place of true spiritual, intellectual, and emotional respite? We genuflect and kneel, and foster a spirit of quiet reverence because Jesus is truly present in the tabernacle and on the altar. External factors can bolster this catechesis: beautiful architecture that orients our minds and souls upward; the presence of Latin or Greek in the liturgy, and celebrating ad orientem, among them.
The first post of Chapter IX of Rousseau and Romanticism, “Romantic Melancholy,” in which Irving Babbitt writes, “does one become happy by being nostalgic and hyperaesthetic, by burning with infinite indeterminate desire? We have here perhaps the chief irony and contradiction in the whole movement.”
Whither Our Catholic Churches By Father John Perricone On The Journal Of Catholic Culture and Tradition TLM Magazine
Three characteristics mark Modernist architecture’s Long March into the Gnostic demimonde. First, it must be First, it must be nondidactic the new art must always appear obscure, ambiguous, and undefined ; eschewing any elements of classic Catholic truths or piety;
Secondly, it had to be nontraditional: it could never be any periods of former Church history, on the unspoken assumption that 1965 was to be the new year of a refashioned Church, Finally and most crucially it must be non-Roman all
art (statues, chalices, vestments) must never convey a formality or splendor of the Church’s self-understanding as the true Church but rather appear indigenous and ardently preliterate. An occasional Byzantine icon would be tolerated only because at least it was non-Roman

Dear God, the Royal Family Is Supposedly Weighed Before and After Christmas Dinner
This strange news comes from royal expert and Majesty editor Ingrid Seward and the new issue of Grazia (so take this story with a mountain of salt). They claim the tradition dates back to King Edward VII’s reign. Apparently, King Edward VII was intensely concerned about people’s health and whether or not they were eating enough on Christmas. That’s sweet and all, but these days the royal family enjoys about three gigantic meals on Christmas day, so the scale seems highly unnecessary

Monday is the feast day of St. Leonard of Port Maurice, an 18th-century Franciscan priest from Italy. He was a popular preacher, and spread devotion to the Sacred Heart, the Stations of the Cross and the Immaculate Conception. He was recognized by Pope Benedict XIV for his outstanding preaching, and sent to preach in Corsica in 1744. He died in 1751 at his friary in the odor of sanctity, and was canonized in 1867. He is patron of parish missions. We republish an excerpt from his most famous sermon as follows on the link
St. Catherine of Alexandria, saint of November 25 – On Tradition In Action
After the unsuccessful attempt to kill St. Catherine on the wheel, Emperor Maxentius ordered her to be beheaded. She was conducted to the place of her martyrdom followed by a multitude, mainly ladies of high condition who wept at her fate. The virgin walked with a great calm
When Sister Lucia was told “even when all the world’s Bishops consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Russia will already have scattered her errors throughout the world , provoking wars and persecution of the Church . The Holy Father will have much to suffer” Or as in our case the Holy Father will persecute faithful Catholics and anyone who clings to Tradition (preconciliar Catholicism). An allusion that our Lord made to Louis XIV through Saint Margret Mary Alacoque.
What are Russia’s errors that were prophesized would spread throughout the world ?
A totalitarian sociopolitical economic regime inspired by an atheistic and egalitarian doctrine opposed not only to the idea of Christian civilization but to the natural law as well.
Evolutionist materialism – founded on the principals of the so-called dialectic materialism – one universal reality formed by blind and hidden forces, which through natural evolution is transformed into plants m animals, and men. Whereby human society , they claim, evolves through an inexorable need and perpetual conflict of forces tending to a final synthesis –a denomination free classless society (various element of their philosophies overlap with the tenets of ecclesial freemasonry)
Atheism – (Any belief in God that exists has no rights , nor any God can anyone claim to have rights )
Class Struggle – exacerbating antagonisms between the social classes (as seen in the last Presidential electionon both sidesfunded by global socialism)
Depriving man of his liberty and dignity – The denial of man’s natural rights attributing those rights to the collective
Absolute equality – The advocating of absolute equality , rejecting all hierarchy and authority coming from God , even that of parents , claiming that all authority and subordination are derived from society
Negation of the right of private property – (Many do not see these rights slowly being eliminated in the United States having already been eliminated in much of South America and Eastern Europe)
Rejection of the sacred character of human life and the family (As seen in the Catholic hierarchy’s stake in the socialism adoption into neo-Catholic social teachings and the new dissolubility of marriage )
Robbing parents of the right to education their children . Children are increasing taken from the home , in more and more home-school cases throughout the world, to be cared for by ‘the collective’ which is the State
Negation of the Law and perennial morals – In this system morals and the judicial order stem from the economic system and hence transient changeable earthly values – (the merger of the morals system with the economic system they deem to be one of their greatest achievements of the century
The utopian ideal of a classless society with the eventual abolition of the State – (Only the state , in their system is never abolished but only grows in power)

“if we took the wealth of the world and simply redistributed it equally, we would undermine economic incentives and capital concentration. What would happen is that all would be poorer because the growth dynamism for all would be undermined.”

Discourse on Inequality – On Wikipedia
Also commonly known as the “Second Discourse”, is a work by philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Rousseau first exposes in this work his conception of a human state of nature, presented as a philosophical fiction and of human perfectibility, an early idea of progress. He then explains the way, according to him, people may have established civil society, which leads him to present private property as the original source and basis of all inequality

Why the whole truth of this will not be found in this short story is because it goes much much deeper.

In those days, the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to all the multitude of the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: I am the Lord your God, You shall not steal. You shall not lie; neither shall any man deceive his neighbor. Thou shalt not
swear falsely by My name, nor profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord. Thou shalt not calumniate thy neighbor, nor oppress him by violence. The wages of him that has been hired by thee shall not abide with thee until the morning. Thou shalt not speak evil of the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind; but thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, because I am the Lord. Thou shalt not do that which is unjust, nor judge unjustly. Respect not the person of the poor, nor honor the countenance of the mighty; but judge thy neighbor according to justice. Thou shalt not be a detractor, nor a whisperer among the people.Thou shalt not stand against the blood of thy neighbor. I am the Lord. Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart, but reprove him openly, lest thou incur sin through him. Seek not revenge, nor be mindful of the injury of thy citizens. Thou shalt love thy friend as thyself. I am the Lord. Keep ye My laws: for I am the Lord your God
Gospel John 10: 22-38
At that time, it was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch. The Jews therefore came round about Him, and said to Him: How long dost Thou hold our souls in suspense? If Thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not. The works that I do in the name of My Father they give testimony of Me; but you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them life everlasting, and they shall not perish forever, and no man shall pluck them out of My hand. That which My Father hath given Me is greater than all, and no one can snatch them out of the hand of My Father. I and the Father are one. The Jews then took up stones to stone Him. Jesus answered them, Many good works I have showed you from My Father; for which of those works do you stone Me? TheJews answered Him: For a good work we stone Thee not, but for blasphemy:and because that Thou, being a man, makest Thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods? If he called them
gods, to whom the word of God was spoken, and the Scripture cannot be broken; do you say of Him, Whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest: because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not: but if I do, though you will not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father
Maundy Thursday Before the Ducal Palace in Venice, 1765
From the letter to the Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 Jesus Christ, the great high priest
Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession of faith. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weakness, but one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet never sinned. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and favor and to find help in time of need.
Every high priest is taken from among men and made their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal patiently with erring sinners, for he himself is beset by weakness and so must make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. One does not take this honor on his own initiative, but only when called by God as Aaron was.
Even Christ did not glorify himself with the office of high priest; he received it from the One who said to him,
“You are my Son; today I have begotten you”; just as he says in another place, “You are a priest forever,according to the order of Melchizedek.”
In the days when he was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to God, who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when perfected, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, designated by God as high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
From an Easter homily by Saint Melito of Sardis, bishop The lamb that was slain has delivered us from death and given us life
There was much proclaimed by the prophets about the mystery of the Passover: that mystery is Christ, and to him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
For the sake of suffering humanity he came down from heaven to earth, clothed himself in that humanity in the Virgin’s womb, and was born a man. Having then a body capable of suffering, he took the pain of fallen man upon himself; he triumphed over the diseases of soul and body that were its cause, and by his Spirit, which was incapable of dying, he dealt man’s destroyer, death, a fatal blow.
He was led forth like a lamb; he was slaughtered like a sheep. He ransomed us from our servitude to the world, as he had ransomed Israel from the land of Egypt; he freed us from our slavery to the devil, as he had freed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. He sealed our souls with his own Spirit, and the members of our body with his own blood.
He is the One who covered death with shame and cast the devil into mourning, as Moses cast Pharaoh into mourning. He is the One who smote sin and robbed iniquity of offspring. He is the One who brought us out of slavery into freedom, out of darkness into light, out of death into life, out of tyranny into an eternal kingdom; who made us a new priesthood, a people chosen to be his own for ever. He is the Passover that is our salvation.
It is he who endured every kind of suffering in all those who foreshadowed him. In Abel he was slain, in Isaac bound, in Jacob exiled, in Joseph sold, in Moses exposed to die. He was sacrificed in the Passover lamb, persecuted in David, dishonored in the prophets.
It is he who was made man of the Virgin, he who was hung on the tree; it is he who was buried in the earth, raised from the dead, and taken up to the heights of heaven. He is the mute lamb, the slain lamb, the lamb born of Mary, the fair ewe. He was seized from the flock, dragged off to be slaughtered, sacrificed in the evening, and buried at night. On the tree no bone of his was broken; in the earth his body knew no decay. He is the One who rose from the dead, and who raised man from the depths of the tomb.
What is the end game of the LGBT movement ? Is their objective equal rights , is their objective to change Catholic teachings, to eradicate Christian moral and beliefs, to re-order society ? What is their end game?
From my studies, in traditional Catholic Social teachings and Sacred Scripture as it relates to the current social phenomenon of the same sex relationships’ full court press push into society, politics, the corporate world and the religious world it is found that it is much much more than basic acceptance they seek, nor just the redefinition of sin. Number one, it has high level architects, mid-level implementers, and powerfully placed enablers. Secondly, or what should rightly be put up front , is that these people of this movement are only the initial marines on the ground preparing the way for what is to come , for something all-together different
Let us remember that in the journey through the 40 days in the dessert we are reliving this lent (replicating the 40 years of exile of the peoples of the former covenant to which we, of the new Jerusalem , inherited ) our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was brought up to the top of the parapet above the Temple over-looking the kingdoms of the world, which the enemy of the world , who is also the prince of this world, satan himself, offered Christ our Lord dominion over all of that which is already his. The enemy just wanted homage it is written, but homage as what ? as a colleague? – or as a fellow-creator to be ! which he could never be! Once completely rejected and spurned by Jesus Christ the King he swore what ? He whom could not create a bird nor even a single bee claimed that one day he would create something and everyone would worship his creation (essentially the coming to power of the anti-Christ) . What is his creation ? His newly arrived creation is the Transvestite with new and exalted rights, an “IT”. Not just any rights, but through the striving and marine like work of the aberosexual martyrs, rights ABOVE heterosexuals and to be globally accepted as a higher form of life. This higher form of creation is seen as such by the growing power of the sects of the eastern mystery religions of polytheism and pantheism. Its followers kneel to androgyny. As their teachings follow, “I am the virgin and the whore in one”, I am the dark and the light”, I am the bad and yet I am the good”….and on and on.
“IT” will rise to power quickly. You have seen the first two elected transvestite politicians break ground in the United States. It will now soon seek a seat at the United Nations and begin its climb to power. It will meet all the definitions of a crowd pleaser. People will die fighting for “IT” , possibly even wars, and it will meet all the definitions of the son of perdition. And then it will begin …..as we enter this beginning of the end of times , this is what is at stake in the battle of the two towers

Why I don’t go to church – By Jordan Peterson – On YouTube
From an Easter letter by Saint Athanasius, bishop – The paschal sacrament brings together in unity of faith those physically separated from each other
Brethren, how fine a thing it is to move from festival to festival, from prayer to prayer, from holy day to holy day. The time is now at hand when we enter on a new beginning: the proclamation of the blessed Passover, in which the Lord was sacrificed. We feed as on the food of life, we constantly refresh our souls with his precious blood, as from a fountain. Yet we are always thirsting, burning to be satisfied. But he himself is present for those who thirst and in his goodness invites them to the feast day. Our Savior repeats his words: If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
He quenched the thirst not only of those who came to him then. Whenever anyone seeks him he is freely admitted to the presence of the Savior. The grace of the feast is not restricted to one occasion. Its rays of glory never set. It is always at hand to enlighten the mind of those who desire it. Its power is always there for those whose minds have been enlightened and who meditate day and night on the holy Scriptures, like the one who is called blessed in the holy psalm: Blessed is the man who has not followed the counsel of the wicked, or stood where sinners stand, or sat in the seat of the scornful, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
Moreover, my friends, the God who first established this feast for us allows us to celebrate it each year. He who gave up his Son to death for our salvation, from the same motive gives us this feast, which is commemorated every year. This feast guides us through the trials that meet us in this world. God now gives us the joy of salvation that shines out from this feast, as he brings us together to form one assembly, uniting us all in spirit in every place, allowing us to pray together and to offer common thanksgiving, as is our duty on the feast. Such is the wonder of his love: he gathers to this feast those who are far apart, and brings together in unity of faith those who may be physically separated from each other.
Saint Frances of Rome was born in 1384 in Rome, the daughter of a wealthy aristocratic couple. At the age of 12, she was arranged to marry Lorenzo Ponziani, Commander of the papal troops of Rome. Their marriage lasted forty years and bore three children. Rome was in chaos and ruins at the time after many battles between popes and anti-popes as well as periods of Neapolitan occupation. Tragically, Frances’ two daughters were killed, her husband seriously wounded, and her son nearly escaped ransom. These strifes led Frances into deep prayer and into a life of service.
She joined her sister, Vannozza, in traveling through the city caring for the sick and the poor. Frances turned part of her family’s estate into a hospital and ultimately, founded the Olivetan Oblates of Mary. This group of pious women was not cloistered or vowed but served the needs of their community through prayer and acts of charity. The group eventually grew to include a monastery, calling its members the Oblates of Saint Frances of Rome. After her husband’s death, Frances moved into the monastery and became its president. She was canonized in 1608 by Pope Paul V and is the patron saint of oblates.*
From the Moral Reflections on Job by Saint Gregory the Great, pope The mystery of our new life in Christ
Holy Job is a type of the Church. At one time he speaks for the body, at another for the head. As he speaks of its members he is suddenly caught up to speak in the name of their head. So it is here, where he says: I have suffered this without sin on my hands, for my prayer to God was pure.
Christ suffered without sin on his hands, for he committed no sin and deceit was not found on his lips. Yet he suffered the pain of the cross for our redemption. His prayer to God was pure, his alone out of all mankind, for in the midst of his suffering he prayed for his persecutors: Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.
Is it possible to offer, or even to imagine, a purer kind of prayer than that which shows mercy to one’s torturers by making intercession for them? It was thanks to this kind of prayer that the frenzied persecutors who shed the blood of our Redeemer drank it afterward in faith and proclaimed him to be the Son of God.
The text goes on fittingly to speak of Christ’s blood: Earth, do not cover over my blood, do not let my cry find a hiding place in you. When man sinned, God had said: Earth you are, and to earth you will return. Earth does not cover over the blood of our Redeemer, for every sinner, as he drinks the blood that is the price of his redemption, offers praise and thanksgiving, and to the best of his power makes that blood known to all around him.
Earth has not hidden away his blood, for holy Church has preached in every corner of the world the mystery of its redemption.
Notice what follows: Do not let my cry find a hiding place in you. The blood that is drunk, the blood of redemption, is itself the cry of our Redeemer. Paul speaks of the sprinkled blood that calls out more eloquently than Abel’s. Of Abel’s blood Scripture had written: The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the earth. The blood of Jesus calls out more eloquently than Abel’s, for the blood of Abel asked for the death of Cain, the fratricide, while the blood of the Lord has asked for, and obtained, life for his persecutors.
If the sacrament of the Lord’s passion is to work its effect in us, we must imitate what we receive and proclaim to mankind what we revere. The cry of the Lord finds a hiding place in us if our lips fail to speak of this, though our hearts believe in it. So that his cry may not lie concealed in us it remains for us all, each in his own measure, to make known to those around us the mystery of our new life in Christ.

In 1832, the ravaging finger of cholera hit every home and house in the great city of Paris.
This terrible epidemic, a disease without cure, struck hundreds and beleaguered many more. And yet, an exceptional phenomenon was noticed. Those who devoutly wore a certain small medal around their neck were spared or relieved from the epidemic. Symptoms of the plague were observed to leave the victims and withdraw into the gutters of Paris.
What medal, what power, was this that through the course of time triumphed over such devastating odds? The answer laid among the winding streets of Paris, specifically at the bolted doors of a small sanctuary known as the Rue de Bac.

O most holy Virgin who didst find favor in God’s sight and hast become His Mother; O Virgin, immaculate in body and soul, in thy faith and in thy love, look down with pity on the wretched who in our need seek thy powerful protection.
The evil serpent on whom was cast the primal curse continues, alas, to attack and ensnare the poor children of Eve. But thou, our Blessed Mother, our Queen and our Advocate, thou who from the first instant of thy conception didst crush the head of this cruel enemy, receive our prayers. United to thee with one heart, we beseech thee to present them before the throne of God.
May we never be caught in the snares around us, but rather may we all reach the harbor of salvation. Despite the awesome perils which threaten, may God’s Church and all Christian society sing out once again the hymn of deliverance, of victory and of peace. Amen.
Turning the Artistic Tide in the Post-Conciliar Era – By Adrian Hau – On
Regina Magazine – With Photos Courtesy of St. John Cantius Church
“The tradition of making fine art, particularly religious art and classical
church architecture, has largely disappeared in the post-conciliar era.
Nearly all accredited and degree-granting art and architecture programs no
longer teach the techniques of the Renaissance and academic masters,
choosing instead to favor novelty and self-expression. As anyone who has set
foot inside a modern Catholic Church can attest, the fruits of this secular
philosophy have found their way into the Church”
