Urgent prayers and Lenten Almsgiving needed

The Newell Family

Please help however you are able to show support for the Newell family, FSSP Phoenix.

“Late Thursday afternoon, the Newell family experienced a terrible accident; their sweet baby girl Annunziata (Nunzi) fell into a gated pool and drowned. The firemen were able to revive her and she is now in critical care at the hospital. It will take a few days before we know much about her prognosis. Nunzi has two older brothers and another sibling on the way. Her parents are caring, and loving. Their beautiful family is one that we all love very much. With permission from family, I am creating this on their behalf. Please spread the word and pray for a miracle. Please support, share, donate, however you are able. With little ones at home, and family traveling to help them in this time, having help with food can hopefully help the family in a small way and allow them to focus on their sweet little girl.”

“Hasten the day, bring on the time”

Ember Saturday in Lent

Fourth Lesson
Lesson from the book of Ecclesiastes
Ecclus. 36:1-10 
Raise Your hand against the heathen, that they may realize Your power. As You have used us to show them Your holiness, so now use them to show us Your glory. Thus they will know, as we know, that there is no God but You, O Lord. Give new signs and work new wonders; show forth the splendor of Your right hand and arm; rouse Your anger, pour out wrath, humble the enemy, scatter the foe. Hasten the day, bring on the time; that they may declare Your wonderful works, O Lord, our God.
R. Thanks be to God.

Two years into the NATO-created war in Ukraine, and the propaganda just won’t stop

Explanation from Mundabor:

Tomorrow will mark two years since the start of the Special Military Operation in THE Ukraine.

I remember very vividly the attempts of Russia to stop the NATO encirclement, and the repeated offers to avoid action if only Ukraine and NATO had declared membership for Ukraine off the table. But then there was more, as the Russians in the Donbas were systematically persecuted and, in fact, cannonaded.

Following the usual Anglo-Saxon pattern, NATO decided that they would force Russia to act, and then call them invaders. Around the 19 February, THE Ukraine began to shoot 2000 shells a day against the civilians in the Donbas, up from 20. Clearly, they wanted Russia to go in; thinking, in their immense incompetence, that the Ukrainian army, after 8 years of NATO training and rearmament, and with all the fortifications built, would easily defeat the Russian army. To this you must add the other fantasy, that the sanctions would cripple the Russian economy and force another colour revolution.


Russia reacted as it was clear it would. It recognised, by act of Parliament, Donetsk and Lugansk as independent Republics. Then they received the latter’s formal request for military help. Then they – again, by act of Parliament – authorised the Russian Government to intervene. This was the same pattern used by NATO to attack Serbia in, if memory serves, 1999. Then as now, no UN mandate was deemed necessary. What is good for the NATO goose must be good for the Russian gander.

What started then was the most colossal propaganda operation ever seen in the West, possibly worse than the COVID scare exercise. A wave of intolerance and Russophobia pervaded Europe in a way reminiscent of the Nazi book bonfires. Concerts cancelled because of Russian music, common citizen targeted in any possible way (not only with sanctions at home, but threatening their travel, aiming at their credit cards, etc.). Blank hatred.

Make no mistake, this hatred was not casual, or only due to perceived military reasons. It was very ideological from the start…

Canceling elections to save democracy… Ukraine as proxy for USA this November?

“A very significant political event occurred in Ukraine earlier this month, and almost nobody noticed. President Volodymyr Zelensky, the leader of the war-torn country, just received approval from his parliament to extend Martial Law another 90 days. There have been many parliamentary extensions of the wartime mandate, but this one carried special significance because the 2024 presidential elections in Ukraine were scheduled for March 31, 2024, coinciding with the end of Zelensky’s five year term. Now that Martial Law is in place to cover that time period, Ukraine’s presidential elections have been canceled indefinitely…”


Our Lady has warned us, time and time again, with great specificity, about everything that is happening in the Church and in the world

“The sacrament of Holy Orders will be mocked, oppressed, and despised because they (masonic sects) oppress and violate the Church of God, and God Himself in his priests. Then the devil will endeavor to persecute the ministers of Our Lord in all ways and will labor with cruel and subtle astuteness to deviate them from the spirit of their sublime vocation, making them degenerate into debauchery. Scandalizing the Christian people many times, they (the bad priests) will draw upon all the priests the hatred of the bad Christians and of the enemies of the Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church. With this apparent triumph of Satan, they will draw immense sufferings on the good pastors of the Church, and on the great majority of good priests, and the Supreme Pastor and Vicar of Christ on earth who is prisoner in his Vatican will shed secret and bitter tears in the presence of God and his Lord begging for light, sanctity, and perfection for all the clergy of the whole world, of whom he is king and father. Moreover, in these ill-fated times, there will be unrestrained lust which will captivate countless frivolous souls who will be lost for being the snare of sin for the others. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor any sense of shame in women. In this supreme necessity of the Church, he, who at the time should have spoken, will be silent.”

POOF! Lithium prices plunge, plants and mines shut down, after EV market goes bust

Producers of lithium and nickel pause projects after prices collapse and momentum slows for electric-vehicle sales

When the world’s most valuable lithium company last year announced plans for a $1.3 billion plant in South Carolina, local officials hailed it as transformative for the Palmetto State.
The high-tech project from Charlotte, N.C.-based

was designed to process different sources of lithium, including from recycled batteries, and serve as a supplier of the critical mineral for South Carolina’s burgeoning electric-vehicle industry.

Less than a year later, those plans have been hobbled by a crash in battery metal prices, undercut by a slowdown in electric-vehicle sales growth in the U.S. and China. Albemarle has deferred spending on the project, amid companywide cost-cutting that includes layoffs and delays to other investments as well.
Producers of lithium and nickel, which are used in lithium-ion batteries for EVs, have been stalling projects and closing mines to save cash after a painfully quick fall in commodity prices. Prices of lithium are down as much as 90% since the start of last year, while the price of nickel has roughly halved…

“The essence of perfection is to embrace the will of God in all things, prosperous or adverse.”

The essence of perfection is to embrace the will of God in all things, prosperous or adverse. In prosperity, even sinners find it easy to unite themselves to the divine will; but it takes saints to unite themselves to God’s will when things go wrong and are painful to self-love. Our conduct in such instances is the measure of our love of God. St. John of Avila used to say: “One ‘Blessed be God’ in times of adversity, is worth more than a thousand acts of gratitude in times of prosperity20.”

Furthermore, we must unite ourselves to God’s will not only in things that come to us directly from his hands, such as sickness, desolation, poverty, death of relatives, but likewise in those we suffer from man—for example, contempt, injustice, loss of reputation, loss of temporal goods and all kinds of persecution. On these occasions we must remember that whilst God does not will the sin, he does will our humiliation, our poverty, or our mortification, as the case may be. It is certain and of faith, that whatever happens, happens by the will of God: “I am the Lord forming the light and creating the darkness, making peace and creating evil21.” From God come all things, good as well as evil. We call adversities evil; actually they are good and meritorious, when we receive them as coming from God’s hands: “Shall there be evil in a city which the Lord hath not done22?” “Good things and evil, life and death, poverty and riches are from God23.”

It is true, when one offends us unjustly, God does not will his sin, nor does he concur in the sinner’s bad will; but God does, in a general way, concur in the material action by which such a one strikes us, robs us or does us an injury, so that God certainly wills the offense we suffer and it comes to us from his hands. Thus the Lord told David he would be the author of those things he would suffer at the hands of Absalom: “I will raise up evils against thee out of thy own house, and I will take thy wives before thy face and give them to thy neighbor24.” Hence too God told the Jews that in punishment for their sins, he would send the Assyrians to plunder them and spread destruction among them: “The Assyrian is the rod and staff of my anger . . . I will send him to take away the spoils25.” “Assyrian wickedness served as God’s scourge for the Hebrews26‘‘ is St. Augustine’s comment on this text. And our Lord himself told St. Peter that his sacred passion came not so much from man as from his Father: “The chalice which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it27?

When the messenger came to announce to Job that the Sabeans had plundered his goods and slain his children, he said: “The Lord gave and the Lord taketh away28.” He did not say: “The Lord hath given me my children and my possessions, and the Sabeans have taken them away.” He realized that adversity had come upon him by the will of God. Therefore he added: “As it hath pleased the Lord, so is it done. Blessed be the name of the Lord29.” We must not therefore consider the afflictions that come upon us as happening by chance or solely from the malice of men; we should be convinced that what happens, happens by the will of God…
