Email from the Maricopa County health komissar:
Hours before the first debate, DNI John Ratcliffe declassifies information related to the Hillary orchestrated Russia hoax, sends it to Lindsey Graham, who then releases it.
Comey knew, Brennan knew, Strzok knew, and they made sure the Obama/Biden White House knew. Everyone was in on it, everyone went along with it. And then how many billions were spent on the Mueller Witch Hunt?
Is there any sort of Rule of Law, or does none of this matter?
Imagine what the still-classified evidence shows.
COLLECT: O God, who wondrously directs the services of angels and men, grant that our lives on earth may be guarded by the angels who stand ever before Your face ministering to You in heaven.
POSTCOMMUNION: We rely on the prayers of the blessed Archangel Michael, O Lord, that the Sacrament which we have received upon our lips may always remain in our hearts.
St. Michael, pray for us!
“They have raised the throne of their abominable impiety”
Anyone reading this blog is surely quite familiar with the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel. It’s said after the Rosary and after Low Mass, as instituted by Pope Leo XIII, who composed it after having a dark vision regarding the future of the Church. What many don’t know is that the prayer we use is a drastically shortened version of the original. And boy, the original is simply terrifying. But it’s also a WMD in the realm of Spiritual Warfare, so we need to learn about it.
There are varying traditions regarding the circumstances and even the year in which Leo had his vision and then transcribed this prayer. However, there are several elements that seem to be common to all of the accounts I’ve read. Shortly after saying Mass one day, Leo became entranced. Some reports have him falling to the ground and appearing dead, others have him standing upright as if dead on his feet, ashen-faced. When he regained his faculties, he reported “Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!” What he saw was Satan with a multitude of evil spirits charging forth from Hell, engaged in an epic battle in an attempt to destroy the Church. Then Saint Michael intervenes to consign Satan and his minions to the depths of Hell, just as he did at the time of the original non serviam (Rev 12 HERE).
The political/social/economic climate of the 1880s is an important backdrop to all of this. The profound
promises errors and evils of the Endarkenment were freely mixing with the profound promises errors and evils of Marxism. The industrial revolution and its fledgling Capitalism were not without their own abuses. Rome had been conquered militarily and the Papal States lost, bringing a deep concern over the temporal sovereignty of the Pope and its effect on his ability exercise his spiritual authority.
As an aside, you really should dive into all the great writing of Pope Leo XIII. Start with just a few paragraphs of Rerum Novarum HERE. When something written 125 years ago so clearly applies to our times, and seems like it could have been written yesterday, you know you’ve got something good. A lot of his stuff is that way, and if you are remotely aware of current events in the Vatican, the prayer you’re about to read is going to seem rather on-target.
So what was so horrible in Pope Leo’s vision? Well, it wasn’t the ending, because the ending would have been a great relief. Yet it wasn’t a sense of victory that Leo came away with. Why? Because the first part of the vision – in which he saw how Satan would come to attack the Church – must have been truly horrifying. Pope Leo had been around the block a time or two at this point. He would not have been easily shocked. Keep this thought in mind as you read the long version of the prayer.
Lastly, a word of caution. This is truly a weapon of Spiritual Warfare, which is a very real thing. It’s more real than the room you’re sitting in and the chair you’re sitting on. Get that through your head. It’s not something to be messed around with. In this prayer, which is used in exorcisms, you are (indirectly) engaging with creatures whose intellects are orders of magnitude greater than your own. Make the Sign of the Cross before and afterward and adopt a military bearing.
ORIGINAL PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL, POPE LEO XIII, ~1886
“O Glorious Prince of the heavenly host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible warfare that we are waging against the principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the evil spirits. Come to the aid of man, whom Almighty God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of Satan.
“Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist thee, nor was there place for them any longer in Heaven. That cruel, ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels. Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory.
“This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be.
“Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate thee as their protector and patron; in thee holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly find mercy in the sight of the Lord; and vanquishing the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, do thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen.”
ACB got the nomination Saturday. I do have concerns about her, which I will write about when I have time.
Sunday, a sitting President defends Catholicism from the White House. I am not a Trump drunkie, but think about how amazing this is:
“We have noticed some comments in the media about my incredibly qualified nominee, Amy. The New York Times said her religion is not consistent with American values… She’s Catholic. That covers a lot of people. That’s a very disgraceful thing to say…we settled this 60 years ago with the election of John F. Kennedy…But seriously, they’re going after her Catholicism. I will stand with her, fight with her, and we will make sure that these attacks stop because … it’s unprecedented. They’re basically fighting a major religion in our country. It’s just incredible.” https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-treatment-barretts-catholicism
NYT drops Trump’s tax records Sunday night, which, they would have had to obtain those through a criminal act, correct?
Mike Pompeo at the Vatican tomorrow, but not with Bergoglio… Vigano? Benedict?
First presidential debate tomorrow night. Will there be? What will it look like? Will John Goodman be there with his backback from Flight?
Bottom line, a lot of things converging. It was 7 October when they dropped the “Grab em by the p****” tape in 2016. So either they dropped the taxes a week early, and that’s all they’ve got, or there will be additional October Surprises. Don’t forget we have the Freemasonic Encyclical being signed in Assisi on 4 October, which is the one year anniversary of the Pachamama worshiping service in the Vatican Gardens.
Stay on your toes, stay confessed. Five weeks until the non-election.
There is exactly ONE Holy Catholic Apostolic Church. The One True Religion. Get in the boat. Stay in the boat. Stay, fight; we know we win.
“The precept is twofold, but Charity is one.” – St. Augustine
Today is the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost.
Epistle Eph. 4:1-6
Brethren: I therefore, a prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called: With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity. Careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. One body and one Spirit: as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all, who is blessed forever and ever. Amen.
GOSPEL Matt. 22:34-46
At that time, the Pharisees, hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, came together. And one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him: “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him: ” ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole soul and with thy whole mind.‘ This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.’ On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.”…
You cannot have proper charity towards your neighbor without first having total abandonment to God. Whole heart, whole soul, whole mind. There’s no other way, folks. His grace awaits, and any good we do flows from that. The natural human capacity for love, worked through grace, is a reflection of our being made in the image and likeness of God. It’s the closest thing to the supernatural that we get to experience while yet in this life. Like all things good, perfecting it requires effort, focus, and order.
“Tough Love” is a thing. Salvation of souls is the foremost object of love towards neighbor. While we must always first look to remove the beam in our own eye, getting people into the boat sometimes requires harsh language.
“Love is man’s first and constant vocation. Love is the summary of the whole Bible. Love is the secret of the saints, the necessary way to God. It is the means to reveal God’s heart to other men. But the beauty of God’s love must show itself fresh and new in every Christian; for beauty, to delight and attract, must be fresh as the morning. Every deed of vital love, performed by us in our personality which nature and grace has fashioned, is like the morning of time itself.
“God is love” (I John 4:8) in its mysterious fullness and infinite freshness. Utterly King and Lord, He unites the baptized of every nation in the one Mystical Body of Christ, by the one Holy Spirit, under the one Mother Mary.“
If anyone ever tries to tell you that Truth is a matter of public opinion, that Truth hinges on upvotes, clicks, likes, follows, or any other such nonsense, run as fast as you can. Truth is a Person, and all other truth flows from Him. He is Truth, and He created truth. He already explained to you that it wouldn’t be popular. Quite the opposite.
And yet, we are called to proclaim the truth, and to help our brethren. Fraternal Charity. Fruit of the Second Joyful Mystery. The Roman Catholic Church is the One True Religion. Pass it on.
From the Fourth Lesson of Ember Saturday in September (today):
“These then are the things, which you shall do: Speak ye truth every one to his neighbour: judge ye truth and judgment of peace in your gates. And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his friend: and love not a false oath: for all these are the things that I hate, saith the Lord.” Zacharias 8:16-17
Speak ye truth.
The real answer to the question posed in the below headline from CSNBC is answered in second part of this post.
Why so many people are hopeful about an mRNA coronavirus vaccine
<video at the link, I couldn’t embed>
The whole world is watching — including investors and public health specialists — as more than 30 biotech and pharmaceutical companies race to develop a safe Covid-19 vaccine. But there’s a big question lingering over the process: How do we balance safety with speed?
The process is moving quickly with several vaccine candidates entering late stage trials in a matter of months. Pfizer and biotech Moderna are two of the companies the White House has chosen to fast track through the FDA’s regulatory process. Both companies are attempting to use messenger RNA, or mRNA, to produce their vaccines, a technology that has never before received regulatory approval.
Enter, Gates of Hell, back in March 2016: http://www.ddn-news.com/index.php?newsarticle=10450
Gates Foundation bets big on Moderna’s mRNA technology
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—A year after it attracted the largest private financing round ever for a biotechnology company, Moderna Therapuetics is receiving another major show of support for its messenger RNA (mRNA) technology. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has announced a $20-million grant to Moderna to advance the development of an affordable mRNA-based cocktail of antibody therapeutics… Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, tells DDNews that the Gates Foundation grant will provide support for GLP toxicology studies, preparations for clinical trials and a Phase 1 study. “We are honored that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has selected Moderna as a partner, recognizing the tremendous potential of our mRNA drug platform to address some of the world’s most widespread and urgent health concerns,” he says. The initial $20 million provided by the Gates Foundation grant could be just a fraction of a longer-term contribution. The Gates Foundation and Moderna have reached an agreement that could eventually lead to another $80 million in grants from the foundation…
The CDC conducted some actual science around corona transmissibility and mortality. They have long been on record as saying the actual spread is at least 10x the reported number of “cases,” or positive tests. Which means the mortality rate, just simple math, would be 10x lower than currently reported. Which we know is still wildly inflated by counting all deaths “with” corona as deaths “from” corona. Only 6000 people have died from corona alone. Death by motorcycle but with corona goes into the corona pile. The real number of people who died from contracting corona, who would not have otherwise died from something else these past six months, is a figure much, much lower than the 200K “official” deaths… I am a non-medical non-paid reality spokesperson.
Well, now they have published the “most likely” scenario of how dangerous the corona is, by age group. If you click on the link, the first several pages of verbiage explain the methodology and many different inputs. You should read it all. Eventually if you scroll down far enough, you will see the smoking gun.
I want you to focus on the far right column of this chart, “Current Best Estimate,” and look at the second row of data, “Infection Fatality Rate” (mortality rates among people who contract the corona, by age group).
Do you see what I see? Again, this includes all the Stage 4 cancers, strokes, kidney failures and accident victims who were suspected of corona. Now allow me to convert those “official” mortality rates into survival rates, to make it easier to understand and share, and judge for yourself if everything, especially everything related to young people, should continue to be cancelled, or, NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.
- 0-19 years old: 99.997% survival
- 20-49 years old: 99.98% survival
- 50-69 years old: 99.5% survival
- 70+ years old: 94.6% survival
And again, the real numbers are even 4x-5x better than these. Never mind that half the people over 70 who died were probably murdered in nursing homes.
Get the word out, folks. Time to end this.
