Children in dough mixers - who did this to Syria?

Who did this to Syria?

Who created the conditions for the creation of ISIS?

You know the names. Obama, Clinton, McCain, Cameron. The blood of these children is on their hands.

The American people have been lied to be their leaders and need to hold them to account.




The sick jihadis killed children, the eldest was just four years old, in an industrial dough kneader in the Syrian town of Duma.

In a chilling testimony, one Syrian woman spoke of “Christians being killed and tortured, and of children being beheaded in front of their parents.”
Speaking to Dr Yvette Isaac, from advocacy charity Roads to Success, Alice Assaf said: “Our neighbour came in and said: ‘Umm Issa, they have taken many girls about 300 girls. They were taken to Duma. Many of them were Christians and few were Alawites.
“At the bakery, there were six young people who were working there. We knew them. They were burned in the oven, six well-framed men.

“Then there were 250 children. They were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
As well as dealing with ISIS, Duma has been the site of bloodshed and violence as the city has found itself at the heart of the Syrian civil war.
The brutal killings were highlighted by Congleton MP Fiona Bruce before Parliament.

Recounting Dr Isaac’s testimony, Mrs Bruce said: “She showed us recent film footage of herself talking with mothers–more than one– who had seen their own children crucified.
“She told us of a mother with a two-month-old baby. When Daesh knocked at the front door of her house and ordered the entire family out, she pleaded with them to let her collect her child from another room.
"They told her, ‘No. Go. It is ours now.’”
The horrific killings comes as ISIS continues to wipe out Christians in the Middle East, targeting believers in Iraq and Syria.

The report, by charity Open Doors UK, found Christians in the region have been taken hostage, church leaders assassinated, homes and businesses destroyed and women and girls raped and forced into sexual slavery.
ISIS terrorists took the Christian town of al-Qaryatain, Syria in August 2015, trapping the town’s 300 Christians and murdering 20 who tried to escape.

Christians returning to the town, which has been liberated by rebel forces, have found their homes and businesses reduced to rubble and landmines left by ISIS littering the town.

Before 2011, Syrian Christians numbered about eight per cent of the population of 22million.
Today about half are believed to have left the country.
A spokeswoman from Open Doors UK said: “Horrific stories such as these are sadly all too familiar to those who have encountered Daesh.
"Open Doors local partners in Syria and Iraq are providing trauma counselling to help victims of abuse begin to heal following their terrible experiences, as well as providing practical support.”

Let us now turn to Iraq

The modern Iraqi nation was a creation of the British and French under Sykes-Picot. It was cobbling together of various ethnicities which failed to respect historical and tribal regions upon the collapse of the Ottoman Empire formalised in 1920 by the League of Nations. It was for European control over people and oil and an early example of the evil Globalism we are now experiencing, then advocated so much by the American President and "progressive," Woodrow Wilson.

Interspersed in this post are some pictures taken in the last few days to encourage you that, notwithstanding that, the evil that we have inflicted upon these people, they have not lost their faith and God has not abandoned them.

We, in the West (Europe, Canada and America) have long exploited these people. We have used them for our own gain and have disrespected their heritage and independence.

Saddam Hussein was a brutal man, a despot, to be sure. He kept a diverse nation-state united by his terror, not unlike Tito in the former Yugoslavia. To consider just the state of Christians in Iraq, they did not suffer, they were not persecuted. On the plains of Nineveh, they were the oldest indigenous Christians in the world, descendants of our father Abraham and taught the faith by St.Thomas the Apostle.

Saddam Hussein was never a threat to America. He was not behind 9-11. That was the Saudis. How did Americans fall for that lie by George W. Bush? Iraq should never have been invaded. George Bush will be held do account for what he unleashed and the blood pouring from his hands. Barrack Hussein Obama has even more blood on his hands for what he did - abandoning a broken state, a state broken by his predecessor which he, America, had the moral duty to defend and protect, having broken it in the first place. Do not underestimate the evil perpetuated in Iraq, and Syria, by Turkey and Erdogan who have lusted after a new Ottoman age.

As you read this, Iraq forces are beginning to take back control of towns and villages on the way to Mosul. Church bells are ringing in these villages and Christians are gathering in prayer in Baghdad.

How much blood. The West, lead by American, destroyed this land.

My next post will feature the murder of children by ISIS in dough mixtures and roasted alive in ovens. All done while that malefactor Barrack Hussein Obama sat by and watched it happen.

How is God going to deal with us, in the West, who have caused so much grief in the East? 

Can we really be so smug as to think that we are innocent in this? 

Turn now then to Max J. Joseph, an Assyrian writer and artist and consider this for the future of this long-suffering people.

What the minorities of Nineveh truly want is to be free from the shackles of being called “minorities”. They don’t want protection, they want empowerment. They don’t want rhetoric, they want demonstrable equality. Iraq must be given a new start after the false one in 2003. A country can usually be judged by how it treats its worse-off citizens, and so far, Iraq has done little to merit praise in this respect. To prevent the state sinking once more into a sectarian mess, Assyrians and other groups who have had so much taken from them should have their dignity restored by being allowed to live and prosper in their own lands free from destabilizing external influences.
Long term interests are aligned here, and these must not be sacrificed by the GoI under Abadi for short-term political gains. The NPU was not established as a temporary force, it is here to stay. Assyrians within it who have taken up arms, along with the thousands who wait patiently to be accepted into its ranks (ranks only limited by support and funding, not desire) are doing so because want they to establish themselves in a country that has forgotten its identity. It is now time to build faster than those preoccupied with destruction.

The blood of Syrians is on the hands of Americans, Canadians, Europeans and Saudis - are you prepared for war with Russia? Has enough blood not been spent?

My ancestors were native to Mount Lebanon. The blood that runs in my veins is Lebanese which is mainly of the Canaanites and Phoenicians of the ancient world.  My grandparents all came from Maronite villages on Mount Lebanon. Their language evolved from the ancients to Aramaic and then to Arabic. The Syrian people are cousins, they spoke the same language, share the same history and underwent the same arabisation. Yet, for the most part, Christians and Muslims in Syria lived peacefully, provided they were left alone.

The Ottomans dominated for centuries until after the collapse following the Great War in 1917. Sykes-Picot and the Balfour Declaration carved up the Middle East creating many of the problems at hand today.

The blood on the hands of our western leaders is immense. European and American and we in Canada will have much to account for. Our ancestors drew lines and created artificial borders for oil and politics. We continue down that same destructive path.

Basher Assad may not be our idea of a liberal democrat. Frankly, the last time I looked, which of our western liberal democratic leaders do we really think serves the interests of the people to say nothing about the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ? 

Assad is a cultured and educated man who cares deeply about his people. He has attempted to build a nation-state for all. He has refused to bow to America and Europe and the degenerate House of Saud and what has it gotten the people?

The propoganda against this man and his wife is immense. 

I am not justifying military means on one's people, but; who created this problem that a government was forced to take extreme action to keep its nation united? Who undermined the legitimate government? 

The United States of America went to civil war, a brutal civil war that cost more American lives than any other in history. The Confederate States of America were aided by foreign powers. It even had a friend in the Pope!

Americans went to war and killed its own citizens to prevent a disunion of the nation. What hypocrites these American leaders are!

Is this man a monster?

Is this a man hated by his people?

Americans, Canadians, Europeans! There is a war on for your mind!

The situation in Syria is a disgrace and the blood is on our nations in the West. There is one country that is operating legally in Syria and that is its long-time ally, Russia. 

Russia is not my enemy!

Assad is the legitimate President. It is not up to America to determine that he is not. George Bush and then Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Cameron his predecessors, Harper in Canada have destroyed these countries, killed hundreds of thousands, if not millions in the process. Now, we the people are expected to take in the refugees who have little to contribute and may in themselves, contain the seeds of revenge in our own streets for the murderous folly of our governments.

Christians were not dying under Assad. Syrians were not in civil war until foreign operatives and mercenaries funded  by the Saudis, Europeans and North Americans destabilised the nation.

We will be chastised and very soon. Now, we are in moving closer to a showdown with Russia, over Syria. Why is your media not reporting on this?

Failure to Accept Russia’s Position in Syria Inching US Closer to War
In recent weeks, officials of Western governments have engaged in a dramatic escalation of rhetoric condemning the Syrian and Russian governments for alleged war crimes that have occurred since the collapse of a UN-backed ceasefire in late September.
The escalating charges aimed at Russia and Syria, reinforced by well-orchestrated media campaigns propagating official talking points, are familiar in the sense that such attempts to mould public opinion have traditionally been a precursor to Western military interventions.
Western and Gulf states have been unequivocal about their intention to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, presumably to replace it with a client regime that would maintain an adversarial relationship with Russia, Iran and various political forces associated with Shia Islam.
On the ground, the Syrian military, supported by Russian, Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah allies are on the path to military victory over the rebel-held east of Aleppo, which would mark the restoration of government control in all of Syria’s largest population centres.
Insurgents that have been armed and supported by the United States are now besieged in eastern Aleppo fighting Syrian government forces in coordination with jihadist militants, including the al-Nusra Front, the former Syrian wing of al Qaeda that Washington itself classifies as a terrorist organisation.
Some 270 thousand civilians are besieged alongside the militants controlling the area. Though the ongoing offensive has undoubtedly put the civilian population of the area at risk, larger questions about the fighting in Aleppo have hardly been raised by Western media.
The dominant narrative about Aleppo asserts claims that Syria and Russia are ‘deliberately bombing schools and hospitals to kill civilians’ or maintaining a siege to ‘break the will of the population’.
Almost no serious questions are asked of the rebel leadership in control of eastern Aleppo. The insurgents’ routine shelling of government-held western Aleppo – where the vast majority of the population, reportedly 1.5 million, reside – is hardly reported.
It must be recognised that the primary armed opposition fighting in eastern Aleppo and elsewhere are jihadist insurgents who have either superficially distanced themselves from the al-Qaeda brand or openly associate with it. More so, it is common knowledge that these groups have committed beheadings and heinous rights abuses.
Given the ferocity of Russian and Syrian airstrikes, why haven’t more civilians attempted to leave eastern Aleppo? UN Syria Envoy Staffan de Mistura claimed that Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, the rebranded version of al-Qaeda’s Syria affiliate, is holding ‘hostage’ the civilian population of east Aleppo.
From a humanitarian perspective, it is pertinent to question the effectiveness of the forceful approach taken by the Syrian and Russian militaries. There is a precedent for a non-violent solution to the situation, advocated by De Mistura himself.
In August 2016, a deal between government forces and militants ended the four-year siege of the Damascus suburb of Daraya. Civilians were evacuated and militants were bused to rebel-held areas in northern Syria without surrendering their weapons. This took place with the full cooperation of government forces.
De Mistura has offered to personally accompany the jihadist fighters out of eastern Aleppo, while other (allegedly ‘moderate’) insurgents and civilians remain under conditions of a ceasefire. The botched September 2016 ceasefire also sought this outcome, a key condition being that US-backed rebels divorce themselves from jihadist al-Nusra fighters.
It is clear that expelling these jihadist forces is the prerequisite for quelling the fighting in Aleppo, but there is political resistance to this outcome from Western and Gulf states because it would imply the surrender of anti-Assad groups and the impotence of their regime change objectives.
Moreover, as Syria’s largest city, Aleppo represents a major strategic prize. If captured, the foreign-backed opposition could establish an alternative Syrian government, which Western and Gulf states would then treat as the sole legitimate government.
The battle for Aleppo has been characterised as an ‘existential crisis’ for the mainstream anti-Assad forces. Should the Syrian government retake eastern Aleppo, it would deal a devastating blow to regime change efforts, but it would not mean a decisive end to the war. Kurdish forces have maintained their hold over parts of Syria, while the Islamic State continues to hold much territory.
That being said, the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and others have invested enormous political capital to regime change efforts in Syria. Washington is determined to avoid a costly and humiliating defeat in Aleppo and is currently reviewing measures to shore up its proxies.
Among the options under consideration is the establishment of a no-fly-zone and safe zones, staging attacks against the Syrian air force and arming the Syrian rebels with additional weaponry. Should the US attempt of these options, it would directly violate international law.
The United States is not technically at war with the Syria, nor is there a UN resolution authorising American forces to operate inside Syria’s borders. Establishing a no-fly zone over Syrian airspace, safe zones within Syrian territory, or US military attacks on the Syrian air force and its bases would directly constitute an act of war against Damascus – and by extension, Moscow.
The Washington Post reports:
‘There’s an increased mood in support of kinetic actions against the regime,’ one senior administration official said. ‘The CIA and the Joint Staff have said that the fall of Aleppo would undermine America’s counterterrorism goals in Syria.’’
“One proposed way to get around the White House’s long-standing objection to striking the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgement, the official said.”
It is deeply alarming and baffling that the US leadership has here equated the fall of the jihadist-occupied Aleppo as harmful to counterterrorism objectives. Should moral outrage be directed at any side, it should not be toward the Syrian and Russian governments, who are attempting to restore legal order over Syrian territory, albeit by controversial means.
Rather, it is the United States and its European and Gulf allies that have forged an alliance with terrorist organisations in an attempt to destroy an independent-minded secular nationalist government promoting a pluralistic and inclusive form of Islam that should most beget public condemnation.
This would certainly be the case if the Western public at large ever truly absorbed the gravity of what their governments have done in Syria. It is unlikely that President Obama would concede to a major military escalation during his final months in office, though the possibility remains.
Hillary Clinton, who will presumably become the next US president, publically supports the establishment of a no-fly zone in Syria and has openly stated her number one objective in Syria is the removal of Bashar al-Assad’s government.
Russia has begun to deploy advanced anti-missile and anti-aircraft systems in Syria. Trust between Russia and the United States has entirely eroded. Russia is holding the cards in Syria and it is difficult to imagine how open conflict can be avoided should the US pursue an escalation. The seriousness of this moment should not be understated.

"America is great, because America is good."

"America is great, because America is good," according to Hillary Clinton.

No Hillary, America is not good. She was once, she is no longer.

Lest I offend my many loyal American readers, my own country, Canada; is not good either.

Our nations have advocated and aggressively promoted the slaughter of innocents in the womb. On this, America has led the way for the whole world. Sixty, maybe seventy million - 70,000,000 babies murdered since Roe vs. Wade. The eldest would be young grandparents today, the loss of population so far is perhaps 90,000,000. One wonders what is wrong with the economy? The economic contributors were murdered or never conceived by those who were. I apologise for putting people in economic terms but it does highlight the issue quite dramatically.

Hillary Clinton wants every American Christian to now pay for baby murder.

Canada has already embraced euthanasia; American states are individually rushing towards that abyss.

The United States of America, has destroyed Syria, Iraq, Libya and is now provoking a potential confrontation with Russia. Russia is not America's enemy, she is not Canada's enemy. Imagine if a Russian and American president could sit down together. Imagine if these two nation-states could join forces to defeat our real enemy.

No, America is not good. It lost that claim a long time ago.

But it can be.

Commie Catholics - their time is very, very short!

The Clinton conspiracy against the Catholic Church in America is nothing new. The effeminate shills such as Edward Beck, a Passionist priest in New York City are but another example of "useful idiots."

Truly, Edward Beck, also known as Father CNN, has his reward. As does Podesta, Palmieri and Tim Kaine, they too have theirs, and they will get theirs. Mark my words on that and it may be sooner, much sooner than they think. They can call themselves Catholic and hide behind it but remember friends. Judas Iscariot was one of the first Catholics and was condemned by Our Blessed Lord even before his actions, notwithstanding what Bergoglio might suggest.

I have written previously on the literal throwing under the bus of Catholic in Taiwan and mainland, communist China by Bergoglio in an attempt to appease the communist dictatorship there. It is a repeat of the Ostpolitik of Roncalli and Montini. Truly, do any of these aiders and abettors of communism deserve to be called Pope?

On October 13, the 99th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima occurred. On that day, it passed with no notice from the Vatican whilst our Pope praised the man who fomented the revolt that lead to Illuminism, Freemasonry, Zionism sexual libertinism and Communism, the arch-heresiarch, Martin Luther. Imagine, a Pope of Rome praising Luther. I'm not sure Luther would be so pleased.

These communists have invaded the Catholic Church. Podesta and Palmieri and Kaine are but the latest pathetic examples of Catholics who compromised with the devil and communism. In Canada, we have our own long-standing examples. From Gregory Baum and Remi de Roo to Vernon James Weisgerber the former Archbishop of Winnipeg who worried more about plastic water bottles than butchered babies to Justin Trudeau who congratulates Planned Parenthood. Communists, all of them. Traitors of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

The judgement of Christ upon these malefactors will be tremendous. May they repent before that terrible day.

What is happening in our Church is not new. From the time of Luther which gave birth to the so-called "enlightenment," truth has been compromised and relativized. Bella Dodd told us what happened in the twentieth century. Those who were once accused of wearing tin-foiled hats are being exonerated. Oh, how we wish it were otherwise.

New Jesuit Superior General - a Marxist Revolutionary. Surely, you weren't surprised ...

Image result for Father Arturo Sosa Abascal

Rorate has the exclusive insight from one who knows him.

This man who has worked very hard all his life to re-interpret Christianity from a Marxist viewpoint, who has done not only “theoretical” work, but direct Revolutionary work, is the one that the Jesuits now have elected as their General. Perhaps the growing revolutionary moment in Colombia, checked by the population itself in the referendum that voted down Marxist demands that would have been inserted in their own Constitution -- and for which their president won, unsurprisingly, the Nobel Peace Prize), demands that. But one still remains mystified: what is it that the revolutionary are after, still? In Venezuela they have systematically destroyed the productive infrastructure, agriculture, industry, public administration, the courts, hospitals, schools, even the energy industry that supports the country; they have killed thousands of people, they have the country at the edge of disastrous famine never before seen in such scale in the Americas. What is it that they are after? Probably the only explanation is the utter destruction of God’s world in order to build “a New World” in history. May God protect us from the revolutionary underworld. May God convert the hearts and open the eyes of his people. And, above all, may Christ protect His Church.

Let us see in this the work of God. He is permitting this in order to speed His rescue. The election of Bergoglio may have been a diabolical act, but a diabolical act permitted by God in order to bring about true renewal which can only be through true restoration.

Something evil is coming our way. Out of it, we will, through the power of the Holy Spirit and the presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ, triumph because He already has.

Keep the faith and get ready; 2017 beckons, indeed, it is already here.

In the end ..

"Catholic" Justin Trudeau congratulations a century of racism and murder. Time for a formal excommunication from the Catholic Church!

This picture of his Twitter says it all.

But not really all.

These pictures say the rest.

Let us now go back four decades to his father, Pierre Elliot, the Jesuit educated Prime Minister who ushered in the first legalisation of abortion in Canada, though under severe restrictions which eventually were struck down by Canada's Supreme Court ironically using the same Prime Minister's, constitutional amendments.

“You know, at some point you are killing life in the foetus in self-defence – of what? Of the mother’s health or her happiness or of her social rights or her privilege as a human being? I think she should have to answer for it and explain. Now, whether it should be to three doctors or one doctor or to a priest or a bishop or to her mother-in-law is a question you might want to argue …. You do have a right over your own body – it is your body. But the foetus is not your body; it’s someone else’s body. And if you kill it, you’ll have to explain.”

Passionist Priest Edward Beck - How a narcissist prostitutes himself for Clinton and CNN

Image result for father edward beck
Passionist Priest Edward Beck
You're worried about some potty-mouth and unsubstantiated claims that are now being refuted by witnesses?

If you vote for Hillary Clinton, knowing her intentions on abortion and the Catholic Church, you will have participated in an evil act.

But you won't hear that from Edward Beck, a Passionist priest in New York City and a contributor to Crux and CNN. I have copied the Crux article below, lest they get any clicks out of it.

In an article on Crux, "Why Clinton campaign emails aren't necessarily anti-Catholic," this priest, Beck, takes the position that the greater offense and crime and presumably sin, is the hackers.

Beck goes on to add that Newman is a "Catholic." Well, Ed, so was Judas!

Beck has the temerity to write of "spin." Well, he should know what "spin" is because he just did it.


What our well-coiffed priest does not seem to get, you can't really block anyone from Twitter. First, if one does not log-in, one can see any page. Second. you can always take out an alternate account. 

Beck is a disgrace to the priesthood. A man who has spent far too much time in front of a mirror than the tabernacle has no business being a priest. He has no business telling Catholics that there is an "out" to vote for Hillary Clinton.

One look at Beck's Facebook page displays a dangerous narcissist for a priest. Where are his Superiors?

Image result for father edward beck

Donald J. Trump is a man with flaws. His behaviour is rough and he has said some unacceptable things in his life. Well surprise, who has not.  Is he suitable to be President? A lot more suitable than Hillary Clinton in one matter. He has promised to put forward a Supreme Court with pro-life Justices that may eventually be able to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Hillary Clinton will not only, not do that, but will aggressively expand the murder of children. 

Beck is nothing more than a shill for the Democratic Party and the American left. He is not of Christ but of the Father of Lies.

Think very carefully, Americans. 

Do you want to join Edward Beck before the LORD trying to explain yourself out of this?

And please, please, would you really want to be as stupid as us Canadians?

The Beck article

Some Catholics were left scratching their heads by the kerfuffle created by the revelation of hacked emails of the Clinton campaign.
Conservative Catholic groups and some members of the hierarchy were quick to accuse the writers of the emails of participating in an anti-Catholic smear. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia called for an apology from the Clinton campaign.
“Of course it would be wonderful for the Clinton campaign to repudiate the content of these ugly WikiLeaks emails,” he said.
Catholic League President Bill Donohue said that John Podesta, campaign chair for Clinton, should be fired for his participation in the controversial email exchange:  “He is fomenting revolution in the Catholic Church, creating mutiny and is totally unethical.”
Not all Catholics agree with such grandiose assessments, which suggest a nefarious plot against the Catholic Church.  More progressive Catholics view the email exchange as an honest dialogue - intended to be private - between people (all Catholics themselves, by the way) discussing how to respond to a conservative element in the Catholic Church that seems intent on turning back the advances of Vatican II.
In the emails, John Halpin, a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, suggests that the Catholicism of some socially conservative Catholics, including members of the Supreme Court, is “an amazing bastardization of the faith…They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign director of communications, responds, “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.  Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelical.”
As Pope Francis has often indicated, the Catholic Church is a large tent that allows for many opinions and perspectives within its flaps.  The writers of the emails in question can be seen as Catholics expressing their views about how their faith intersects with public policy and social agenda.
The emails can likewise be interpreted as drafted by Catholics who are concerned that their Church risks becoming irrelevant, rather than being interpreted as smears on a Church they disdain.
Palmieri’s response actually seems more denigrating to Evangelicals than to Catholics.  Progressive Catholics understand precisely what is being communicated in the exchange.  It is not unlike other familiar conversations among clergy and Catholics who have been buoyed by the strides of Pope Francis, and his emphasis on social justice over controversial moral and sexual teachings.
Many Catholics do believe, as the emails suggest, that Church teaching needs to evolve more quickly if it is to have a relevant impact on a rapidly evolving world.  Those Catholics are also sympathetic to the reality that private email exchanges may be less than diplomatic and not always politically correct in expressing those heartfelt concerns.
In responding to an email by Sandy Newman of Voices for Progress, who suggests the need for a “Catholic Spring”, John Podesta writes, “We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this…Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up.”
This hardly sounds like a man intent on creating an “unethical mutiny.”  Rather, it sounds more like a concerned Catholic attempting to align his faith with his political ideals and principles, albeit from his left-of-center perspective.
Pope Francis has said, “A good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of himself, so that those who govern can govern.”

The meddling of a few wonky Catholic Clinton campaigners should be less concerning to us than the meddling of far more impious entities who hack private emails and illegally release them, to a populace all too ready to put its own spin on them.

The Podesta Email

Date: 2012-02-11 11:45
Subject:  Re: opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing . . .

We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United.

Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up. I'll discuss with Tara. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is the other person to consult.

It was Martha - the story of a woman who sought the pearl of great price

Ten years ago today, October 16, 2006, my mother passed away. Today would also have been the 90th birthday of my wife's father, Basil. Sadly, Basil passed away two days ago on October 14. He battled cancer for 26 years. In your charity, please pray today at Mass for the repose of his soul or say an Ave for him if you could.

I wrote the post below a few days after her funeral and publish it yearly. Putting aside the insanity of Rome, may this lift your heart as it continues to life mine.


On October 16, 2006 in her 92nd year, my mother was called home to the LORD. She was a woman of great faith in God and taught many lessons to all those who came into contact with her. This was especially true in her last few years. She suffered the loss of her first grandson and then her first son from cancer and bore much physical suffering with faith, trust and humility.

October 16 is, according to the calendar for the Traditional Latin Mass, the Feast of St. Hedwig a medieval Polish duchess; she died on October 14, 1243. She was also maternal aunt of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, incidentally my maternal grandmother's name. So it was then for me a serendipitous moment when at the Mass that morning, the Epistle from the First Letter of Blessed Paul the Apostle to Timothy was read:

Dearly beloved: Honour widows that are widows indeed. But if any widow have children, or grandchildren, let her learn first to govern her own house, and to make a return of duty to her parents: for this is acceptable before God. But she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, let her trust in God and continue in supplications and prayers night and day. For she that liveth in pleasures is dead while she is living. And this give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any man have not care of his own, and especially of those of his house, he hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel. Let a widow be chosen of no less than threescore years of age, who hath been the wife of one husband having testimony for her good works, if she have brought up children, if she have received to harbour, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have ministered to them that suffer tribulation, if she have diligently followed every good work.

The Gospel was the parable about the "pearl of great price." Martha spent her life auctioning all for that pearl. I believe she found it.

A few days before she died it was my 50th birthday. We sat at the kitchen table eating dinner. I was feeding her and told her that 50 years ago we were in the same kitchen and at the same places at table except she was feeding me and now I was feeding her. We had a conversation and she told me that she was ready to go whenever God was to call her. Often we hear or read of those things that are “unexplained” except by coincidence, of course. To those who know and love God, “there are no coincidences.” Not even the fact that the Epistle read that day was one of the two options from the "Common of Holy Women."

That day started as many others. I woke my son for school, I got ready for work and before dashing out the door and bidding her adieu the home care assistant was there to help her get ready for the day and stay with her whilst I was at work.

I had gone to Mass at the Oratory on my lunch hour. I had just gotten back to work around 1:00 PM as the second aid arrived for the shift-change back at home. Her name was Bridget and as she arrived she went into the family room. My mother had only moments earlier complained to Cora, the morning aid, of difficulty breathing and then closed her eyes. Bridget yelled out her name, “Martha, Martha!” and gently slapped her. She stirred and let out a long breath.

My mother Martha, died.

I got the call moments later and on the way home it was clear from speaking to the paramedics that she was gone. She suffered a merciful cardiac arrest, yet because I refused to post a Do Not Resuscitate as experience taught me that would include choking to death, the paramedics were working on her with Adrenalin and heart paddles but were not having any success. I spoke to Bridget and told her that a priest from the local parish was on his way (the Sacrament of the Sick, what we used to call Extreme Unction had already been administered by one of her faithful Oratorian Priests a few weeks earlier.) I asked Bridget to go to my mother’s bedroom and retrieve the sick visit Crucifix from the wall above her bed. (This is a Crucifix which slides off and is placed in a stand; on either side are then candle holders and some of the necessary items for the Sacrament).

When I arrived home my mother’s eyes were open and she seemed semi-conscious but staring straight up to the ceiling, she was unresponsive. The priest arrived a few moments later and anointed her. She was transported to “St. Joe’s,” where my father also died, and she did not regain consciousness again. I sat with her and prayed the rosary and sang the Divine Mercy Chaplet to her. After a priest from the Oratory visited and prayed, and then after consulting with him, I instructed the medical staff to remove the respirator and all the intervention they forced upon her in my earlier absence, it was around 5:00 PM. Just after 8:00 I went outside for some air and a few minutes later my sister came to get me that our mother had died. She had just gone out of the room to the nurses desk to make a phone call. My sister was not out of the room a half-minute and no more than 5 metres away and mother passed. It was like she could not let herself go whilst we were with her.

So, what does this have to do with coincidence?

The next day I called Bridget and asked her to stay on for a few more days to be at the house to tidy and answer the phone and assist with guests. Bridget was quite upset to be sure. She had been with my mother daily for the last year and often spoke of how well she was always treated and “their little talks.” She came to me with apprehension that she really needed to talk to me about something.

The paramedics, with all of their intervention, “brought her back.” It took 14 minutes from the time they began to get a pulse. What was disturbing Bridget was that there was no reaction to their work; nothing, until my car screeched in the driveway.

“I have a pulse!” exclaimed the paramedic. It was simultaneous with the screeching of my tires, said Bridget.

But there is more. Bridget was shaking and in tears.

“David, I had a dream Sunday night," my mother having died on Monday.

She went on to say that she as typical she had forgotten the dream; until at least she went to my mother’s bedroom to get the Crucifix. Upon seeing Jesus on the Cross the dream came back to her for just a moment and then again, it was gone. The house after all was a mass of confusion, police, fire-fighters, the paramedics, and eventually me, and the Priest; Bridget was now a bystander.

After we left for the hospital, Bridget was alone and tidying up and it was what happened then that she was so desperate to tell me.

At that singular moment in time something happened to Bridget that she will never forget. Nor will I.

Bridget recalled for me her dream.
“I was standing on a street-corner in small town with other people. We were laughing at this man dressed in a robe and with long-hair. He said his name was Jesus and we were making fun of him. Just then a young beautiful woman stepped off of the curb and started to cross the street; she turned around and looked at us, she had tears in her eyes, tears of overwhelming joy, she was happy, really happy. It was then that Jesus took her hand and walked across the road with her.”
That was Bridget’s dream, but I didn't understand.

She went on to say that when she woke up from it she was aware that she needed to be more like the woman who walked across the street. That she needed to have “more faith in Jesus.”

I told her that it seemed like a pretty plausible conclusion.

“Wait” Bridget said, “There is more, you don't understand."

I waited and listened as she started to cry.

“David, I remembered the dream only for a moment when carrying the Cross.”

“When I was tidying up I put the Cross on the end-table over there.”

“Yes, it looks nice there” I replied.

“No, David, you don’t understand, the picture, the picture beside the Cross.”

“Yes, Bridget, what is it?”

“That picture of your mother at graduation.” Bridget started to cry.

“It was her; she was the girl in my dream, it was Martha!"

Bergoglio directly contradicts Our Lord Jesus Christ - Priest calls him out as a "False Prophet"

This writer had the joy of meeting the late Father Peter Carota and singing with him, the Holy Sacrifice. Father Carota's blog continues on, undertaken by a friend of the late priest's.

A post today is a must-read from a diocesan priest, "Father Jerome."

The disgraceful and blasphemous statement by Bergoglio that "it is not right to convince someone of your faith," is the greatest evidence, thus far of how bad it has become in Rome.

How stupid are Catholics that they cannot see it.

Can you see it now when he defies Christ himself?

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."

By Father Jerome 10/15/2016:

After Jesus’ resurrection, Our Lord said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”—Mt 28:19. To the contrary, Pope Francis said this week: “It is not right to convince someone of your faith.”
This means Pope Francis is now directly opposing Jesus Christ, and it is time for me to speak up.

I am an American diocesan priest who does not belong to any congregation.   To write what I am about to write would normally be tantamount to forfeiting my soul in most centuries of Church history.  I realize that.  But I am so convinced that we have a false-prophet on the throne of Peter that I have reached the point that silence on Pope Francis is now tantamount to a grave sin of omission.


Bergoglio denounces true ecumenism - praises the heretic Luther! Will he be the next canonised?

Fairies invade Vatican!

Bergoglio has, with his own words, condemned himself and set himself against his predecessors. 

"It is not right to convince someone of your faith," says this Bergoglio.

"Go therefore and teach all nations," said Jesus Christ.

Who do you choose?

Are you a Christian or a Papolater?

In an address yesterday, the 99th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Bergoglio stated that proselytism is "venom" and a "threat to Christian unity."

How illogical can he be? He must repent of this error.

What a betrayer of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His cry, "that they all be one." One in Him! One in His Church. Lutherans as individuals must come home, along with Anglicans, Presbyterians, Evangelicals, Eastern Orthodox. How can they come home when Popes preach to them to stay where they are? Why would the Orthodox desire union with Rome when it is overseen by a cabal of malefactors and heretics!

It is only through proselytism, with clarity and charity, that we will achieve "Christian unity." 

Martin Luther has led millions of souls to Hell. There is no salvation outside of the Catholic Church. Should God choose to save those who are not Catholic is up to Him and beyond our knowledge of certainly. What we do know is that it is only by being baptised and in the bosom of the Catholic Church, can we be saved. Vatican II did not change this, notwithstanding its ambiguity and pastoral overtures.

This Bergoglio would rather see Lutherans continue on their path of error following a heretic priest in his blasphemy than come home to the One True Church.

The time has long since passed for a denouncement of this Pope.

What a disgusting and sickening display, a statue of Martin Luther together with the Bishop of Rome. A heretic. A blasphemer. A fornicator who led millions of souls in Hell.

As Brian wonders in the combox, will he dare to lift the excommunication of Luther?

God help us all.

(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 13 - Pope Francis told a group of mostly Lutheran pilgrims on Thursday that proselytism was a potential threat to Christian unity.
"The last thing you must do is 'to say, to convince'. It's not right to convince someone of your faith," he said.
"Proselytism is the strongest venom against the path of ecumenism".
The pope was speaking to around 1,000 pilgrims in the Vatican - most of them German Lutherans - who are in Rome as part of ecumenical preparations for the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Lutheran reformation.
"The Apostle Paul tells us that, by virtue of our baptism, we all form the one Body of Christ," the pope said.
"The different members, in fact, are one body. This is why we belong to each other and when one suffers, all suffer, when one rejoices, all rejoice. Let us continue with confidence on our ecumenical journey, because we know that, beyond the many open questions that still separate us, we are already united.
What unites us is much more than what divides us".
