Friday in Passion Week – Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

(Originally posted September 15th, 2020)

At the foot of the Cross, the Mother of God became Our Mother. Remember, Mary was more holy at the moment of her birth than all the saints combined at the moment of their deaths. Yet she only grew in holiness. This happened in many ways throughout her life, but most especially by her Son allowing her to participate in His Passion. Her participation is the only time “compassion” literally took place in the history of the universe. This was an act of love, in both directions.

She is our model, and Our Mother.

She is our model, because she is the epitome of bearing suffering well, ordering suffering towards its rightful object, uniting our suffering to the Cross, participating in our own redemption through the grace of suffering. It is even possible to experience joy through suffering while yet in this life. There is no escaping suffering, because it is for our own good. If you haven’t really experienced it yet, believe me, it’s coming. Get prepared.

She is Our Mother, precisely because her suffering entailed the participation in Christ’s Passion in a real way. Meaning, she suffered with Him every sin ever committed. She knows you, and she wants you to ask for her help. You are never given a burden heavier than you can manage, provided you work with the graces being offered. And guess who mediates all those graces? Yep, your Mother does that.

Pray the Rosary every day.

Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.

Stabat Mater sequence, literal translation:

1. The grieving Mother stood weeping
beside the cross where her Son was hanging

2. Through her weeping soul,
compassionate and grieving, a sword passed.

3. O how sad and afflicted
was that blessed Mother of the Only-begotten!

4. Who mourned and grieved, the pious Mother,
looking at the torment of her glorious Child

5. Who is the person who would not weep
seeing the Mother of Christ in such agony?

6. Who would not be able to feel compassion
on beholding Christ’s Mother suffering with her Son?

7. For the sins of his people
she saw Jesus in torment and subjected to the scourge.

8. She saw her sweet offspring dying,
forsaken, while He gave up his spirit

9. O Mother, fountain of love, make me feel
the power of sorrow, that I may grieve with you

10. Grant that my heart may burn in the love
of Christ my Lord, that I may greatly please Him

11. Holy Mother, grant that the wounds
of the Crucified drive deep into my heart.

12. That of your wounded Son, who so deigned
to suffer for me, I may share the pain

13. Let me sincerely weep with you,
bemoan the Crucified, for as long as I live

14. To stand beside the cross with you,
and to join you in your weeping, this I desire

15. Chosen Virgin of virgins,
be not bitter with me, let me weep with thee

16. Grant that I may bear the death of Christ,
share his Passion, and commemorate His wounds

17. Let me be wounded with his wounds,
let me be inebriated by the cross and your Son’s blood

18. Lest I be set afire by flames of death, Virgin,
may I be defended by you, on the day of judgement

19. Christ, when it is time to pass away, grant that
through your Mother I may come to the palm of victory

20. When my body dies, grant that to my soul
is given the glory of paradise. Amen

“Through this squatter, the errors of Russia have been put on turbo overdrive in Rome over the last eleven years.”

“Historical amnesia then greases the skids for moral revolutions in all matters of State.  But apparently this is also true in the Catholic Church hierarchy.  Even a growing number of non-traditionalists will admit that a document like Fiducia Pooplicans could have only been possible following “the changes in the Church” of the 1960s.  Why?  Because “the Council” re-created Divine Revelation in so-called “ecumenism” and then revamped the Church’s liturgical history in overhauling not just the Mass, but all seven sacraments.  At the beginning of the 1960s in Rome, the message of the “progressives” was: “Please let us try the experiment of ecumenism and the Novus Ordo.”  But by the end of the 1960s, the progressives would not let any of the traditionalists (priests or brothers or nuns) remain in the congregations they hijacked.  Strange that this liturgical revolution in Rome took place in the exact same decade as Mao’s cultural revolution in China—the 1960s.

“Not only was doctrine and liturgy changed over the past 70 years, but the history of the Catholic Church was revamped.  From numerous saints being removed from the calendar to the modern-myth that “the new Mass is older than the old Mass” (re-read the last part in quotes to see if you’re part of the brainwashed flock) the truth is that all of Catholic history got overhauled in the minds of most Catholics since the 1960s.  Why?  So that we might forget our own history and believe in a new one.  Even better:  “You must believe in the new, fabricated history of the Catholic Church or you’re disobedient.”

“The pinnacle of this brainwashing is that the one currently squatting in a major Catholic Church today is allegedly the “merciful one” crushing all intellectual opposition, especially that small faction of Catholics who maintain the true history of the Catholic Church.  Through this squatter,  the errors of Russia have been put on turbo overdrive in Rome over the last eleven years.  One aspect of this is the document Traditiones Custodes, allegedly limiting the use of the Latin Mass.  Is the name Traditiones Custodes (Guardians of Tradition) ironic as it attempts to destroy tradition?  No.  It is intentional.  Remember:  Mao had to destroy his own country’s culture in order to create a new  history, claiming to be the guardian of all history in China.

“Now does the title Traditiones Custodes start to make sense?”

WWIII: Ukraine Attacks Strategic Bomber Base Deep Inside Russia

(it goes without saying that the technology/warfare deployed here was supplied by the good old USA. -nvp)


On Wednesday a wave of Ukrainian drones targeted a well-known airbase deep inside Russia which is home to strategic bombers. The air base, called Engels 2, is near the Russian city by the same name, and nearby residents reported hearing at least four explosions during the attack.

The Main Directorate of Ukraine’s Military Intelligence (HUR) has since owned up to the attack, with sources in Russia confirming to international media that “targets had been hit” and the damage is being assessed.

Some drones may have been intercepted, however, with Roman Busargin, the governor of the Russian region of Saratov, describing in a statement that a drone attack was “repelled”. This attack is significant given Engels is located over 600km from the Ukraine border…

Hertz CEO resigns after buying 100,000 Teslas

“In 2021, Hertz made a big splash when it announced plans to buy 100,000 Teslas and greatly expand its fleet of EVs. That deal, which came just half a year after a $4.2 billion restructuring saved the company from bankruptcy, moved the brand’s stock price up 40 percent over two weeks. Two and a half years later, the brand is selling off many of those EVs at perilously low prices and the stock is trading at just 20 percent of its 2021 high. That is the sort of outcome that suggests a huge gamble did not pay off, and as a result, CEO Stephen Scherr is stepping down from his role… That announcement is doubly painful because the brand invested so heavily in Tesla inventory when Tesla’s famously fickle prices were near their highest, then decided to sell at a time when Tesla has hurt resale value of its past cars by heavily reducing the prices on its newest offerings. New CEO Gil West will be responsible for figuring out how Hertz can dig itself out of the hole it created and get back to a sustainable business of renting cars.”

Excuse me, President Trump, but I remember EXACTLY what was happening four years ago

Let’s see. March 2020. You had just shut down the country. Millions of jobs lost, companies out of business, death snorkels being built by Ford and GM, nursing homes turned into death camps, schools emptied, Fauci and Birx running the country (and you never, ever, fired them).

Many, many people saw through this from the very beginning. In fact the first post on the topic on this site was Feb 29, 2020. It was transparent even at that early date, before anything had been shut down.

But now that you shut it all down, let’s print trillions of dollars to save the day, and eventually over two straight years of runaway inflation. Hurts so good.

Oh and what about Operation Warp Speed? Spending 15 minutes on the internet yielded the knowledge that, 1. ModeRNA had never brought a vaccine to market, 2. mRNA vaccines don’t work, 3. Coronavirus vaccines don’t work (even worse, they tend to damage or kill the patient).

Then came 2021 and the great jab resistance. You were out of office at this point, because you failed to use the means you had to stop the steal.  Anyway, as 2021 wore on, the rotten fruits of Operation Warp Speed became more and more apparent. On the one hand, the jabbed were being injured, or else contracting covid multiple times (“but thank God I’m ‘vaccinated'”). On the other hand, the purebloods were getting fired from their jobs and being called grandma killers. Fun times.

To this day, you tout the beautiful beautiful jab, despite all its terribleness now being public record.

But I do have one last question:

What was it that they told you on the morning of March 16th, 2020? What was so terrifying that you completely reversed course and decided to implement 15 Days to Flatten America? You owe us that answer, sir. Did they admit to the biolabs and bioweapons, and that this thing could have a very high death rate? Why is it that the Delta strain, a supposed mutation from the original virus, had twice the death rate of all the other variants?

Answers, please.

Crack that whip!

How’s your Lent? Keep falling short? Now is the time to double down. Go back to your promises and make them count for the next two weeks. Offer your sufferings and cooperate with those graces. God will reward you!

“Jesus, eternal God, became mortal man in order to mediate our redemption, to form a new people that would be His Mystical Self, and to bring all men into an eternal union with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There can be no living of Christ without living the price of mediation for souls. That price may vary, from mere fidelity in the performance of monotonous duty, to bearing with loneliness and misunderstanding, or even to suffering violence and death. Sin continues, and therefore suffering for sin must continue. Since Christians share Christ’s priesthood through Baptism and Confirmation, His passion becomes their passion, for an “eternal inheritance.””

Toward a Holy Passiontide: Take care to avoid “spirits of error and doctrines of devils”

The Scriptures Speak

Originally posted APRIL 9, 2016

Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. I know that, after my departure, ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock. And of your own selves shall arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Acts 20:28-30

A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid: Knowing that he, that is such an one, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment. Titus 3:10-11

Whosoever revolteth, and continueth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that continueth in the doctrine, the same hath both the Father and the Son. If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him, God speed you. For he that saith unto him, God speed you, communicateth with his wicked works. 2 John 1:9-11

Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils, Speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their conscience seared….” 1 Tim 4:1-2

For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. 2 Tim 4:3-4

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not. 2 Peter 2:1-3

Blessed Passiontide, everyone!

Russia Explains Math to the Gay Macaroon

By Giuseppe Filotto

Aside the fact that apparently the news all over France is that Macaroon’s “wife” may in fact be a man, and that there is zero record of “her” before the age of 30, Putin has made it clear that if Macaroon wants to play with the big boys, the kind of butt-ramming that Russia will deliver is far more than he’s used to taking, either at home from his “wife” or abroad from his “friends”.

Here are a few details of the Sarmat (SATAN) missile Putin referred to, the RS-28 is an ICBM that contains 10 nuclear warheads which split off shortly before impact, cascading in “umbrella” format, that would devastate an area of approximately 650,000 square kilometres. The entire area of France is 643,802 square kilometres, so, a single Sarmat RS-28 can literally wipe out the whole of France.

The Sarmat RS-28 flies at a speed of between 21,000 and 25,000 km/h, which means France would at most be 4 minutes…


Dead Boeing whistleblower: “If anything happens, it’s not suicide”

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — A close family friend of John Barnett said he predicted he might wind up dead and that a story could surface that he killed himself.

But at the time, he told her not to believe it.

“I know that he did not commit suicide,” said Jennifer, a friend of Barnett’s. “There’s no way.”

Jennifer said they talked about this exact scenario playing out. However, now, his words seem like a premonition he told her directly not to believe.

“I know John because his mom and my mom are best friends,” Jennifer said. “Over the years, get-togethers, birthdays, celebrations and whatnot. We’ve all got together and talked.”

When Jennifer needed help one day, Barnett came by to see her. They talked about his upcoming deposition in Charleston. Jennifer knew Barnett filed an extremely damaging complaint against Boeing. He said the aerospace giant retaliated against him when he blew the whistle on unsafe practices.

For more than 30 years, he was a quality manager. He’d recently retired and moved back to Louisiana to look after his mom.

“He wasn’t concerned about safety because I asked him,” Jennifer said. “I said, ‘Aren’t you scared?’ And he said, ‘No, I ain’t scared, but if anything happens to me, it’s not suicide.'”

Jennifer added: “I know that he did not commit suicide. There’s no way. He loved life too much. He loved his family too much. He loved his brothers too much to put them through what they’re going through right now.”
