Princess and the New York Times By Stewart Chessman On The Society of St. Hugh of Cluny
Princess and mother-figure Gloria von Thurn und Taxis possesses a courageous temperament she manages to communicate to all about her. For her, “princess” is not simply a title, but a duty…She seizes the good fortune of her birth…as a rare opportunity to live a life out of tune with her times: as both feudal princess and democratic contemporary, as pious Catholic and collector of distinctly un-holy art, as patriotic Bavarian and member of the fashionable smart set who wander the world – all at once and at the same time without ever betraying a single one of these roles. 4)

Amazon’s New Co-Headquarters: A Cautionary Tale – Crisis Magazine
To put this in perspective: when Brazil—which at it’s best is a second-almost-first-world country—decided to rebuild its capital and move it from the coastal city of Rio to the more central Brasilia—it not only endured endless headaches, logistical nightmares and the rather reasonable pushback of “Is-This-Really-Necessary?!” from the populace, but ultimately met with only middling success. Make that “success,” given that the new capital city is more of a showpiece than a working “city.” And all this was in 1960!
Father Angelus M. Shaughnessy, OFM Cap, Requiescant in Pace – On The Remnant Newspaper
The Pittsburgh Latin Mass Community and the Catholic world lost a dear friend, Father Angelus M. Shaughnessy, OFM Cap., on March 2, 2018 at the age of 89. He died at 2:15pm while praying the 5th Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary, the Crucifixion, on a First Friday dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
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
‘Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able’
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

The One and Only Pentecost: Against the Neo-Joachimite Heresy
The Second Vatican Council was billed as a “new Pentecost.” But a new or second Pentecost is impossible. Pentecost is the mystery of the Church’s identity and vitality down through all ages until Christ returns in glory; Pentecost is not a simple event like a Fourth of July fireworks display, repeatable at will, but a permanent dynamism, expressed in the perennial freshness of the liturgy over which “the Holy Ghost … broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings”(1), warmly remembered in all those “Sundays after Pentecost” that fill the authentic Roman calendar with bright green.
The Church Was NOT Born at Pentecost: CANCEL The Birthday Party! — Catholic Family News
Traditionally, Catholics have held that the Church was born three days before Easter on Good Friday. Yet, many Catholics and most Protestants are celebrating the ‘Birthday of the Church’ at Pentecost based upon the Protestant ideal of Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone) interpretations. Informed Catholics somberly recall the venerable and authoritative Traditional teaching based on Sacred Scripture that the Church was born amidst blood and water from the wounded side of our Lord and God, Jesus Christ on Calvary.
The United States has a strange love-hate relationship with the British monarchy. Freud might have seen in it a titanic Oedipus complex spanning
two-and-a-half centuries. But explain it as you will, American pundits
routinely jeer at the monarchy, our Irish curse it and we annually
congratulate ourselves at being freed of it.
At the same time, if we encounter it ourselves we go to pieces as when
President Reagan’s protocol chief curtsied to the Queen (strictly speaking a
no-no for Yanks, according to our own national etiquette). When our
presidents visiting the Royal family make faux-pas, their political enemies
over here make great hay. And it’s noticeable that the only white-tie State
Dinners either Bush, Jr. or Obama threw were for the British and Spanish
Sovereigns. Apparently only Monarchs could make the presidential pair behave
like grown-up Chiefs of State.
Succession of the “Head of Commonwealth”: BMFS Chairman’s Statement |British Monarchist Society and Foundation
Those who oppose the succession of the heir to the throne as being the next
“Head of the Commonwealth” would best be reminded of the commitment, duty,
proven track records and selfless actions of said Royal individuals who are
not able or willing to be corrupted by the political ambitions of those who
seek power or position for themselves; those who would forsake the greater
good of the organisation and its people, for their own political agenda and
The Full Color Text Book – Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of Pius XII: A Theme Illuminating American Social History – TFP
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.
May 21 – The last of his noble lineage, he started a spiritual one – Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
St. Charles Joseph Eugene de Mazenod
Founder of the Congregation of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, b. at Aix, in Provence, 1 August, 1782; d. at Marseilles 21 May, 1861. De Mazenod was the offspring of a noble family of southern France, and even in his tender years he showed unmistakable evidence of a pious disposition and a high and independent spirit. Sharing the fate of most French noblemen at the time of the Revolution, he passed some years as an exile in Italy, after which he studied for the priesthood, though he was the last representative of his family.
The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass For Pentecost Monday
DOUBLE, FIRST CLASS / RED From the beginning of His public ministry, Jesus demanded essential belief in Himself as God’s Son and as mankind’s Redeemer. He is the light of the world. It is the very nature of light to shine. And healthy eyes welcome light. But God does not force open the eyes that are blinded by contentment with self and with this world. Jesus chose to let His light shine on all men through His invisible Holy Spirit. Neither continent nor ocean, neither race nor class, is any hindrance to His mighty but gentle coming. He asks only integrity of life and a believing heart.
INTROIT Ps. 80:17
He fed them with the finest wheat, alleluia! and filled them with honey from the rock, alleluia, alleluia! Ps. 80:2. Sing joyfully to God, our Helper, sing aloud to the God of Jacob. V. Glory be . . .
O God, who sent the Holy Spirit to Your apostles, answer the prayers of Your people. Bestow peace upon us, just as You have given us to believe. Through our Lord . . .
LESSON Acts 10:34, 42-48
In those days, Peter opening his mouth, said: “Men, the Lord commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that it is he who was appointed by God to be judge of the living and of the dead. To him all the prophets give testimony, that by his name all receive remission of sins, who believe in him.” While Peter was yet speaking these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them that heard the word. And the faithful of the circumcision, who came with Peter, were astonished for that the grace of the Holy Ghost was poured out upon the Gentiles also. For they heard them speaking with tongues and magnifying God. Then Peter answered: “Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, who have received the Holy Ghost, as well as we?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Alleluia, alleluia! V. Acts 2:4
The apostles began to speak in foreign tongues of the wondrous deeds of God. Alleluia! (Here all kneel.) V. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
CHANT SEQUENCE Holy Spirit, come and shine On our souls with beams divine Issuing from your radiance bright. Come, O Father of the poor, Ever bounteous of your store, Come, our heart’s unfailing light.
Come, Consoler, kindest, best, Come our bosom’s dearest guest, Sweet refreshment, sweet repose. Rest in labor, coolness sweet, Tempering the burning heat, Truest comfort of our woes.
O divinest light, impart Unto every faithful heart Plenteous streams from love’s bright flood. But for your blest Deity, Nothing pure in man could be; Nothing harmless, nothing good.
Wash away each sinful stain; Gently shed your gracious rain On the dry and fruitless soul. Heal each wound and bend each will, Warm our hearts benumbed and chill, All our wayward steps control.
Unto all your faithful just, Who in you confide and trust,
Deign the sevenfold gift to send. Grant us virtue’s blest increase, Grant a death of hope and peace, Grant the joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia!
GOSPEL John 3:16-21
At that time, Jesus said to Nicodemus: “For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world: but that the world may be saved by him. He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not believe is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment: Because the light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil. For every one that doth evil hateth the light and cometh not to the light, that his works may not be reproved. But he that doth truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest: because they are done in God.”
OFFERTORY ANTIPHON Ps. 17:14, 16

From the book of Revelation 15:5—16:21 The seven bowls of God’s wrath
I, John, had another vision. The heavenly sanctuary which is the tent of witness opened up, and out of it came the seven angels holding the seven plagues. The angels were dressed in pure white linen, each with a sash of gold about his breast. One of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of the God who lives forever and ever. Then the sanctuary became so filled with the smoke which arose from God’s glory and might that no one could enter it until the seven plagues of the seven angels had come to an end.
I heard a mighty voice from the sanctuary say to the seven angels, “Go and pour out upon the earth the seven bowls of God’s wrath!”
The first angel went out, and when he poured out his bowl on the earth, severe and festering boils broke out on the men who had accepted the mark of the beast or worshiped its image.
The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea. The sea turned to blood like that of a corpse, and every creature living in the sea died.
The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs. These also turned to blood. Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters cry out:
“You are just, O Holy One
who is and who was,
in passing this sentence!
To those who shed the blood of saints and prophets,
you have given blood to drink;
they deserve it.”
Then I heard the altar cry out:
“Yes, Lord God Almighty,
your judgments are true and just!”
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun. He was commissioned to burn men with fire. Those who were scorched by the intense heat blasphemed the name of God who had power to send these plagues, but they did not repent or give him due honor.
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. Its kingdom was plunged into darkness; men bit their tongues in pain and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their suffering and their boils. But they did not turn away from their wicked deeds.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East. I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet; these spirits were devils who worked prodigies. They went out to assemble all the kings of the earth for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. (Be on your guard! I come like a thief. Happy the man who stays wide awake and fully clothed for fear of going naked and exposed for all to see!) The devils then assembled the kings in a place called in Hebrew “Armageddon.”
Finally, the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the empty air. From the throne in the sanctuary came a loud voice which said, “It is finished!” There followed lightning flashes and peals of thunder, then a violent earthquake. Such was its violence that there has never been one like it in all the time men have lived on the earth. The great city was split into three parts, and the other Gentile cities also fell. God remembered Babylon the great, giving her the cup filled with the blazing wine of his wrath. Every island fled and mountains disappeared. Giant hailstones like huge weights came crashing down on mankind from the sky, and men blasphemed God for the plague of hailstones, because this plague was so severe.
From a treatise on John by Saint Augustine, bishop The new commandment
A new commandment I give you, that you love one another. This commandment that he is giving them is a new one, the Lord Jesus tells his disciples. Yet was it not contained in the Old Law, where it is written: You shall love your neighbor as yourself? Why does the Lord call it new when it is clearly so old? Or is the commandment new because it divests us of our former selves and clothes us with the new man? Love does indeed renew the man who hears, or rather obeys its command; but only that love which Jesus distinguished from a natural love by the qualification: As I have loved you.
This is the kind of love that renews us. When we love as he loved us we become new men, heirs of the new covenant and singers of the new song. My brothers, this was the love that even in bygone days renewed the holy men, the patriarchs and prophets of old. In later times it renewed the blessed apostles, and now it is the turn of the Gentiles. From the entire human race throughout the world this love gathers together into one body a new people, to be the bride of God’s only Son. She is the bride of whom it is asked in the Song of Songs: Who is this who comes clothed in white? White indeed are her garments, for she has been made new; and the source of her renewal is none other than this new commandment.
And so all her members make each other’s welfare their common care. When one member suffers, all the members suffer with him, and if one member is glorified all the rest rejoice. They hear and obey the Lord’s words: A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; not as men love one another for their own selfish ends, nor merely on account of their common humanity, but because they are all gods and sons of the Most High. They love one another as God loves them so that they may be brothers of his only Son. He will lead them to the goal that alone will satisfy them, where all their desires will be fulfilled. For when God is all in all, there will be nothing left to desire.
This love is the gift of the Lord who said: As I have loved you, you also must love one another. His object in loving us, then, was to enable us to love each other. By loving us himself, our mighty head has linked us all together as members of his own body, bound to one another by the tender bond of love.
