Masking Abuse

Once again, I have not been around because I just. can't. stand. it.  

Clueless in Scotland.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!  Today's rant:  the damned mask situation.

Do you honestly believe that wearing a mask is doing ANYTHING for ANYONE in society?  How can you even believe this?  Why are you not looking at the TRUE statistics regarding this whole Covid-1984 SCAMDEMIC?  First of all, the survival rate, across the board, for all types and ages of people, is OVER 99%.  You are fearful of something that you have to be tested for to even know if you have it?  Honestly, it feels to me like the brains have been sucked out of most people these days.  Maybe it's because of the masks -- and yes, they DO cut off your oxygen.  And, if you haven't figured it out yet:  they are causing all kinds of illnesses, including legionnaires disease, and even acne.  DUH.  I'm sorry folks, but I have really had it.  I cannot believe people have fallen so hook, line, and sinker for all this nonsense.

This is NOT normal.  This is STUPID.

What is this really?  It is a small group of egomaniacal wealthy Marxists (kind of an oxymoron, right?) who frankly want to control the world.  It's Communism, for crying out loud!  It's totalitarianism.  It's a pandemic alright -- OF FEAR.  And what really irks me is to see Christians falling for this crap.  Like they are so much more interested in their bodies than their souls.  SHAME ON YOU!

This is DUMB or DUMBER, I forget which.

This mask mandate is nothing other than ABUSE.  Abuse of power and abuse of a person's right to live and breathe and have a face.  Scotland, and the UK in general, are particularly heinous and guilty of this.  That crazy, powermad lunatic in Holyrood (Sturgeon) is hell bent (literally) on controlling her little kingdom.  Blowsy, bloated Boris Johnson is so clearly sold out for evil that it defies words.  People, do you really want someone like him, totally immoral and clueless and arrogant and completely incapable of speaking like a human being, to run your country?

And then there's this:  pretty much as STUPID as it gets.
I will wear a rainbow mask right after hell freezes over.

For the love of God (literally), WAKE UP!  Evil is running rampant.  The church is largely complicit.  The vast majority of bishops have abandoned their flocks and sold out to the secular, goose-stepping-towards-communism governments.  Priorities are upside down.  SCANDAL is rife in the Vatican.  Thank you very much Bergogolio for bringing in the "abomination of desolation" with your stupid Pachamama idols.  How dare you??  And now you're headed for Assisi to sign your stupid encyclical on brotherhood?  Sorry, but people who are completely sold out to Satan are NOT my brothers.

The world has gone totally mad, and no one seems to care.  Well, God says the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church.  But He also says the remnant will be small.

What side are you on?  There is no time for fence-sitting anymore.  And please, take your stupid mask off and act like a person.

Another Gutless, Faithless Bishop

On September 1, I shared Fr James Altman's video in which he has the moral courage to SPEAK OUT against the errors, heresies, lies, etc., of Democrats who claim to be Catholics.  There is much more in this video, including his denunciation of cowardly bishops, bishops who claim there is no hell, bishops who prance around at the DNC and promote the LMNOPXZY rainbow agenda, and so on.  

Fr Altman is a true man of God -- a faithful and holy priest.  We should be rallying around to support him.  The US bishops?  Other than Bishop Strickland, I really don't know.  I know the Scottish bishops are floating around in the same boat of cowardice and lies.  

HERE IS THE STATEMENT

I am sharing the "statement" by Bishop Callahan because it is so limp-wrist namby pamby and pandering to the James Martins SJ of the world, it beggars belief.  He actually calls Fr Altman "angry and judgmental".  Like that's a bad thing.  So now, Spineless Bishop, you are telling us that anything goes and we should just stand by, as limp-wristed as you are, and allow all kinds of heresies, lies, and evils to further corrupt the Catholic Church -- the Church that is already festering with corruption from within the Hierarchy?  NO. 

This statement by Bishop Callahan, WHICH HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THE COURAGE TO SIGN, is why the laity have NO FAITH in their bishops anymore.  

Catholic Lay People:  We are on our own.  There are very few members of the hierarchy who will pass on the True Faith, who will stand up to evil, who will call a spade a spade, who will do THE RIGHT THING, and who will remain true to the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Faith.  Time to for us to stand up and do and say the right things, because the bishops won't.  

And for further clarification on this issue, please spend some time with Restoring the Faith, and watch this video:


By the way, Fr Altman is 100% right when he says you cannot be Catholic AND Democrat.  We cannot vote for Baby-Killing Joe Biden and Kamala-name-of-a-demon Harris.  

One last thought:  There may be some who wonder why I, living in Scotland, am so concerned about all this.  Four reasons:
  1. I am a Catholic Christian, and I am disgusted by the lack of courage and faith demonstrated by bishops around the world
  2. I am an American Citizen, whether I am currently living on American soil or not
  3. Whatever happens in America is going to have a huge effect on the rest of the world, whether we like it or not, and
  4. This is all part and parcel, along with the PLANdemic / SCAMdemic, to create a New World Order, implement the "Great Reset", and destroy all things, the world over, that are Good, True, and Beautiful (essentially, all things Christian).

The "New Normal" is a Lie

If you have read anything on my blog, you know I think the world has gone mad, the people who are protesting / looting / rioting / destroying sacred things are complete idiots, and that Satan and his minions are running the show at the moment.  

I am ESPECIALLY AGAINST the wearing of masks, for a variety of reasons.  One of the most important reasons is this:  It is dehumanizing and NOT normal. 

Please watch with me this very short and excellent homily from last Sunday, given by Fr Altier:


People, we can NOT give in to the lie that anything going on around us is "normal".  There is nothing normal or acceptable about any of it, and we MUST wake up to the fact that this is a Marxist, dehumanizing agenda that is at work here, straight from the pit of hell.

Do not accept their "new normal".  Resist.  It is a lie.

True Apostolic Exhortation!

I LOVE this so much.  I invite you to watch this video if you are a Traditionalist, and even if you're not.  A fantastic conversation between Dr Taylor Marshall and Matt Gaspers (Catholic Family News) regarding the latest letter (Apostolic Exhortation) from Archbishop Vigano.  I revere this true man of God and am so grateful for his continuing ministry and resistance to the Modernist, Masonic, idolatrous anti-Church that has emerged and is especially flourishing under Bergoglio (Pope Francis).  If you are at all concerned or wondering what you can do to remain faithful to the True Church, this is a good place to start:

Which Side Are You On?

THE DEVIL wants us to believe there are no sides.  That we can just "all get along".  That there is no absolute Truth; hell is a myth; all religions are the same.  And in this US election year, that Christians should be apolitical, unthinking doormats who sit back while the party of Satan (Democrats) runs roughshod over the country and completely destroys any- and everything good about it.

It's a spiritual battle and make no mistake.

By the way, to the UK people who think what America does has no impact on them:  If America sneezes, Britain gets a cold.  

Just remember, UK, that America is far bigger, has much more of a far-reaching economy, and is truly an influencer in the entire world. The Empire is gone, my friends.  The maps are no longer pink.  The UK is a pretty small-potatoes nation nowadays.  So, I think you'd better pay attention to what is going on in America, or the paltry little freedoms you do have in the UK will be gone before you can blink.

Marxists in Scotland gathering steam, especially among the youth.

For all the Trump-haters here:  You really have NO idea what you are talking about.  Unless you live and work in the US, you are ignorant of the truth.  I can say this, having lived and worked on both sides of the ocean.  You cannot understand a culture until you are totally immersed in it.  So, it would behoove you stop blabbing on about something of which you know nothing.  


I keep intending to write about the sorry state of affairs in the UK and in particular in Scotland and even more in particular, via the vehicle of the idiotic Highland Council here in the northern Highlands.  One thing that stops me is that the INDIFFERENCE is so phenomenally huge here, it almost isn't worth it.  People here have long ago sold out for their smorgasbord of 36+ benefits and crappy social housing.  God has been out of this culture for decades, maybe even centuries (I maintain that Christianity never really had a very good foothold in this pagan part of the world -- but that's for another post).  So, maybe I will eventually "be bothered" to say something about Scotland, its godlessness, and the Marxist SNP, but for now, there are far bigger fish to fry.

Please watch with me this very excellent commentary on the state of the world, and of faith, by Michael Matt and The Remnant TV:

Please think about these things, people.  I was especially struck by this truth:  that we have all just fallen into line and are policing ourselves.  The police state doesn't even have to do anything.  We roll over and follow all of their political, health, and fear mandates without asking questions (well, not ALL of us, but in general).  Also, Mr Matt couldn't be more on target when he refers to Pope Francis as the "chaplain for the World Health Organization".  Pope Francis and his ilk are not interested in promoting the True Catholic Faith.  No, they are only concerned with their New World Order and New World Religion.  I have no compunction about calling the Pope a heretic.  It is for the faithful clergy AND laity to do so when we KNOW the Truth has been compromised.

Recognize and resist.

It has come to that now.

Perhaps we all need to go back to the Baltimore Catechism, Question 6:  Why did God make you?

Answer:  God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in heaven.

God Bless This Priest

ANY priest who speaks the Truth is a blessing from God.  Pray for Fr James Altman, his protection, and his continued ministry and witnessing.  He is truly a man of God.

Bishops, Apostasy, and Idol Worship

I'm sorry.  I tried, but I can't do it.  There is too much going on around us, both in the world and in the church, to remain silent. Silence is complicity.  I've said it before, and I still believe it.  If ONE person reads an article I've shared or watches a video I've shared, and is provoked to thought and prayer, then it's worth it.  

I just finished reading this book:

It's available from basically everywhere, and I think every Catholic should read it.  Ignorance is NOT bliss, and we need to know where Truth is found, and where it is not.  Of course, there is a whole raft of Pro-V2 clergy and laity out there that try to refute this book, but you cannot deny the evidence.  It is ALL there, and anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will know this.  The infiltrators are running scared, so they are claiming those of us who see them without their masks are just conspiracy theorists or nut-cases.  


Anyway, I have been thinking, especially about the current pontificate and all the relativism, pluralism, and actual idol worship that has come into the Church in the past seven years.  Below is a short video by Fr Mitch Pawca (EWTN) regarding the whole Pachamama thing.  He nails it. 


The thing is, there are many, many bishops out there, worldwide, who have, either licitly or illicitly, sold us up the river, and who support the practice of relativism, plurality, and idol worship.  They are fine with denying the divinity of Christ, treating the "Sacrifice of the Mass" like a Sunday picnic, supporting and promoting LBGT whatever whatever agendas, and leading the people astray with the ideas that Hell is not real / "we don't believe in Hell anymore", homosexual activity within the priesthood is a form of "love", all religions are equal, and so on.  

NOW, during this world turbulence in which lies are proliferating on all fronts, is the time when we MUST hold fast to the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, regardless of what faithless clergy are saying.  Fatima and La Salette both have predicted that the apostasy would occur within the ranks of the clergy and hierarchy first.  From the top down.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what is happening in the Church.  

It will be up to the laity to say NO, we have had enough, and we are following Christ and ONLY the priests and hierarchs who do the same thing.  

Pray the Rosary every single day.  Pray for renewal in the Church.  Pray for the good priests and bishops -- for their safety, courage, and steadfastness.  Pray for your own soul, that you would be able to stand firm and not be duped by the fake Catholicism (and other watered down Christian faith versions) that is trying to herd you into the One World Religion reality.  Anything that points to that is anti-Christ and heresy.  Seek the Truth at all costs!

Unsettled, Like the Weather

Some of us (me) are so affected by our environments.  The weather and the sky, the wind, the humidity, the pollen and dust flying through the air because of combining and harvesting, the haar rolling in from the North Sea.  The weather has been really unsettled lately, just like the world in general, and it is making it even more difficult for me to calm down, be at peace, and focus.

Shermy seems to feel it, too, but not as much as I do!


Shermy is one of those animals who can see things we can't, and sometimes his ears are on backwards!  He also is really good at standing stockstile and staring intently at things only he can see.


You can see the mist attempting to envelope this tree.  On days like this, it seems simultaneously hot and cold!  I do like standing and just feeling the air, and listening to the sounds that are, again, both muffled and clear.


Things are still in bloom.  Lots of flowers will hang on till at least the end of September.  Yet, we can feel that autumn is near.  My husband speaks often lately of how quickly things have turned and how you can feel the onset of fall.


Shermy, however, is more interested in cookie treats, whatever time of year it is!


Today, I finally saw through the window a butterfly on our buddleia.  Usually, it's just lots of bees and wasps.  I haven't actually seen many butterflies this year, sadly.  I'm wondering if the buddleias with purple flowers are more effective in drawing the butterflies than our white one.  


So, I'm attempting to refrain from all the political and religious comments, but it's hard.  We talk about it all quite a bit.  Mostly, we are concerned about the state of the church and how so many of the bishops are letting down the laity -- to the point of leading many souls astray, we fear.  We still plan to travel to Edinburgh for a Traditional Latin Mass, but it's a trek, and although it's the closest place to us, it requires at least one overnight to make it happen.  The plan had been for this weekend, but life got in the way, and we have postponed until next month.

Of course, we also talk about the state of politics, both here and in the US, and the dismal nature of the culture around us.  We're wondering, like everyone else, if there will be another "spike" (or at least whether we will be TOLD by the government there is a spike) in Covid or whatever, and whether the government will attempt another lockdown.  Parts of Scotland are already experiencing a "local lockdown".  Personally, we both believe this is a lot of nonsense, and the political agenda is to use any means available at this point to control the populace.

We believe the demons have definitely been unleashed.  Now is the time to build up our spiritual stores, and to remain faithful no matter what to Christ the King.
Therefore, shepherds, hear the world of the LORD: As I live, says the Lord GOD, because my sheep have been given over to pillage, and because my sheep have become food for every wild beast, for lack of a shepherd; because my shepherds did not look after my sheep, but pastured themselves and did not pasture my sheep; because of this, shepherds, hear the word of the LORD:  Thus says the Lord GOD:  I swear I am coming against these shepherds.  I will claim my sheep from them and put a stop to their shepherding my sheep so that they may no longer pasture themselves.  I will save my sheep, that they may no longer be food for their mouths.  

 For thus says the Lord GOD:  I myself will look after and tend my sheep.  [From Ezekiel 34:1-11]

This reading from Wednesday's Mass readings seemed very timely to me.  I wonder how many "shepherds" read this and felt uncomfortable.  I think many, many SHOULD have felt convicted, but probably didn't.  While this passage should strike fear and terror in the hearts of the shepherds, it should also bring the sheep some true comfort.  Never forget that we do know the final outcome!

Enough Already!

Heather coming into bloom in the Far North, about three weeks ago.

Well, I really have had just about enough.  I never started this blog to be ranting about politics and religion (although, in case you couldn't tell, I do have strong feelings about both).  I have finally yanked myself up and decided I will do my best to limit my rants.  There is more to life... And frankly, other people say it so much better than I, and apparently don't just about meltdown when they do.  I'll leave it to them for awhile.

We keep talking here about how we are going to live as we OUGHT and as we desire, regardless of what the government says, etc.  One positive step I took:  I ditched Facebook!  YAY!  It was driving me crazy and inciting me to madness.  Good riddance!

We used to spend a good long day, driving and exploring all around the north of Scotland, but hadn't gone anywhere for awhile.  We did that recently, and here are a few photos:

Bog cotton and cut peats.

My husband showing me a cut peat close up.  It was fairly dry and hard.
(Don't worry; he put it back!)

Lots of lambykins all over!

Ian says no, it's the people in cars who have no lamb sense!

Bog cotton.

Sometimes you just have to stop taking everything so seriously.  Over the past few months, there have been a lot of frowns and furrowed brows in our home.  The angst has caused untold stress, stolen months, and heartburn.  We're working on that.


We also decided we would just go back to the beginning again, and read through a child's catechism.
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will be no means enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. {Matthew 18:2-4}


Finally, I am REALLY trying to get back to stitching and designing.  It has been so hard to focus my mind and hands on this.  I have felt scattered and fragmented for six months now.  But somehow I managed to stitch these Christmas ornaments.  Now I just need to final finish them.  This was from a Janlynn kit that had been in my stash for a few years.

And so, here ends my first non-ranting, non-political, non-religious post in a long time.  My husband and I have agreed that we will do what we can and must to take back our lives from ridiculous government rules and restrictions, and do our best not to let the devil or the government or complicit bishops (all the same?  I don't know) steal our joy and our very lives.  

In keeping with that, we have also been renovating our entire kitchen!  This is due mainly to two things:  (1) 2+ years ago we bought an old, ex-authority house that was a total dump, and (2) the "tradesmen" we hired to renovate our kitchen did such a thoroughly horrible job, we have had to redo the whole thing.  Ah well...at least it is finally getting near completion.  Photos to follow when it is ALL done!

Be wise, my friends, and cling to the Cross!

Bishops are Fiddling While Catholicism Burns

This is sacrilege.

Do you know, I actually have photos of the stitching I have been doing this past week.  It's true.  Maybe in the next post, I will actually share them.  I keep taking a tiny break from this blog, thinking I will surely come back and write about something uplifting, cheerful, or even just mundane.

But I keep seeing simply unbearable complicity by Catholic clergy and hierarchy, and every day the news brings some new atrocity.  And all the while, most people -- clergy, Catholics, other Christians, bishops, hierarchy, Bergoglio -- just look the other way, or keep silent, or worse, silently cheer on the destruction not just of our physical sacred signs and aspects of the faith, and our physical indicators of what was once a semi-civilised society, but the utter destruction of all Truth and morality.  

My husband and I are horrified, saddened, and sickened by all that we see and hear, all over the world, but especially in the West:
  • A so-called Pope who clearly doesn't even believe in the True tenets of the Catholic faith (Pachamama, Abu Dhabi, need I say more)
  • Comfortable bishops (especially in the US and the UK) who are starting to get a little worried and hot under the collar because there are some lay people who are willing to call them out on their immoral, selfish, and godless behaviour -- and their response is to set up a "by invitation only" online meeting to figure out how to deal with "traditional Catholics".  So, Bishop Barron, are you becoming afraid that we are on to you and see what kind of watered-down garbage you are feeding us, and that you are far, far from the Truth?  Upset that maybe your popularity is waning? Shame on you.
  • A Catholic Congressman has to call for the Department of Justice (US) to investigate the anti-Catholic vandalism that has been sweeping America.  Where are the bishops?  A bunch of cowards, that's where.
  • Churches on both sides of the ocean are burning; the bishops are saying nothing.  Bergoglio is doing even less.
  • In the UK, bishops are trying to dupe the faithful into believing that it is our "duty" to be vaccinated with whatever poisonous crap the people in power come up with, REGARDLESS of whether the vaccines are made using aborted fetuses.  
I could go on an on.  In our own diocese and parish, the "bishop" is telling us we MUST receive Holy Communion in the hand, due to "Covid" restrictions.  Give me a break.  These people don't even have the courage to come out and admit that they don't REALLY believe this is the True Body of Christ.  

The priest in our parish only JUST opened the church, barely.  He is distributing Communion in the hand, and HE IS WEARING DISPOSABLE GLOVES.  You know, the kind you wear for handling garbage.  And THIS is what we have distributing the Holy Eucharist.  We are disgusted, and we will NEVER go back to that church.  Instead, we drive for miles to find a priest who is faithful.

I cannot even express how dismayed, disgusted, and angry I am over the abuses going on in the church.  And I am not even talking about the abuses by demonic, fallen men (sex abuse scandals).  I am talking about people who are supposed to be shepherds, and what's more, supposed to BELIEVE in our Faith.  These priests and bishops are despicable, and they have NO business leading the faithful.
First of all, we are not friends.  This casual greeting which Bishop Barron uses for every address does not make him "culturally relevant" or whatever it is he is trying to be.  Secondly, NO it is not impossible to repudiate this council (V2).  It was a "pastoral event" and it is NOT binding.  Perhaps Bishop Barron would do well to speak with Archbishop Vigano and Bishop Schneider.

The laity are tired of being duped and dumped by people like this.  This man does not even hold to all the tenets of the Catholic Faith.
Don't like this one little bit.  It is commercial, it is pandering to people's fears, it is making a fashion statement, it is shaming those who don't wear masks, it is going with the secular crowd.  I am sad that these two organisations have opted to do this.  It does not reflect well on them.

And at the same time, the 99% of the population who are lemmings are following the whole mask wearing thing in spite of there being no good reason for it and plenty of proof that it is harmful.  What's more, there are Catholic and Christian organisations now making and selling masks as fashion statements.  Again, shame on them.

Shame on all:
  • who are praying on people's fears
  • who are not thinking for yourselves
  • who are perpetrating the abuse of the Blessed Sacrament
  • who are living in fear, yet calling yourselves Christians
  • who are afraid to resist or speak your mind
  • who are listening to media with a clear anti-Christian and anti-freedom agenda
  • who are using masks as a fashion statement
  • who are judging those who choose NOT to wear a mask, for whatever reason
  • who are not speaking out about the descration of the sacred
  • who are supporting the actions of anarchists, terrorists, rioters, and looters
  • who are not in constant prayer for the nations, but more importantly, for SOULS
Shame.  Shame is everywhere, and yet, the most remarkable thing of all:  the incredible pride that Christians and clergy and hierarchy are demonstrating when they show no sense of propriety, no faith in Our Lord, and no shame whatsoever.

Black is white and white is black.  Good is evil and evil is good.  And I sit here and wonder, when will people wake up and see this?  When will people do anything about it?

What am I doing?  I will tell you:  I am seeking a faithful priest; I am going to a different church; I am praying; I am remaining faithful to the Truth in Christ; I am NOT wearing a mask--anywhere, but especially in church; I am receiving Communion only on the tongue; I am signing petitions and speaking up and writing to my political representatives; I am (with fear and trepidation) calling out the bishop when he is going against the precepts of the Church; I am refusing to back down; I am resisting; I am a voice of dissent.

Join me!

Complicity

Well, I keep thinking about the homey, faith-oriented, crafty, stitchy posts I want to write.  

The Deep State and the Deep Church

I think, however, that for the foreseeable future, this blog will often be about the atrocities and anti-Christian madness that is sweeping across the Western world.  It is also about my frustration towards all those who are complicit, even though they don't seem to realise it.  I am a member of the Church Militant, and living in hope for the Church Triumphant.

The anarchists, BLM, rioters, AND the bulk of Western governments (this includes the UK and the USA), have an evil agenda.  They are attempting -- and at the moment, succeeding -- to pull down everything that is great and good about Western civilization.  They are indoctrinating as many people as possible in their sick, Satanic ideologies, and twisting all truth so as to confuse the masses who are, sadly, not very well educated.  Satan and his minions are on the attack, big style, and they are using every person they can sway in their direction to destroy every vestige of the Christian faith -- and yes, especially the Catholic faith -- and to create a New World Order which consists of ZERO freedom; a tiny, wealthy, leftist/liberal elite; and NO Christianity.  They are not fooling around, and we should not be, either.  This is a battle.  This is, as Dr Taylor Marshall said recently, and President Trump retweeted, a War on Christianity.  If you do not see that, you are blind.  If you do not believe that, you are deaf.

In the beginning of this so-called Covid Crisis, I was VERY sceptical.  I did not believe it was anything like what the governments were trying to tell us.  Then, I too found myself feeling slighly panicky and worried.  I thought I was wrong about it all.  Now, I realise I was right in the beginning.  This is not a mere natural phenomenon.  There is much more to it than that, and the governments and anarchists both are using this "Plandemic" to control and dehumanize the people so as to more easily create their New World Order, with placid, obedient, compliant citizenry already in place.  The appalling manipulation of statistics and so-called tests, and the absolute fear mongering by governments and media is unlike anything we have ever seen before -- UNLESS WE WERE LIVING BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN.

Wake up, people.  It is no longer okay to just keep the blinds closed and stay in your own little world, telling yourself that this will pass and everything will be okay.  It is NOT okay now, and it's not going to be okay unless we fight back, and mean it.

You are complicit if you are:
  • Silent -- towards the government, the worldly clergy, the WHO, the health officials, and anyone else who is trying to control your every move and deny you your freedom
  • Wearing a mask because you have been told to, with no legitimate proof that it is doing anyone any good, and plenty of proof that it is harmful
  • Living in fear.  CHRISTIANS DO NOT LIVE IN FEAR.
  • Being intimidated by rebels and thugs who try to shame you for not wearing a mask (this includes the likes of Fr James Martin -- who is clearly disobedient to and against the teachings of the Catholic church)
  • Avoiding other people, keeping far apart, not making eye-contact, etc.  You are well on the way to being invalidated and dehumanized
  • Accepting anything to do with the "Cancel Culture", or any kind of revisionist history or philosophy
  • Supporting BLM or any other terrorist organisation
  • Staying away from church
  • And if you're a Catholic, receiving Communion in the hand because of "Covid restrictions", or frankly, for any reason
And you are something else entirely, beyond my comprehension or appropriate words, if you are phoning in to report on any other person for not wearing a mask, not staying 2 mteres / 6 feet apart, not following the directives of bishops who have already sold out.  Actually, this pretty much makes you a communist.

It will no longer suffice to just go along, comply, accept, and tolerate.  That way leads to perdition.  The only honourable way lies in fighting this evil which is virtually exploding all around us, in society, the government, AND the church.  Christians:  stand up and fight!  God did not give us a spirit of fear.

The discussion today in one of my faith groups on FB was this:  What would you do if you could be arrested for going to Mass (church)?  It has come to this, friends.  

For me, God is first.  I don't give a rat's behind about these freedom-denying government regulations, nor do I care one wit what the "Cancel Culture" and protesting public think of me.  Neither am I interested in any gossip going around the community of not-very-bright people in which I live.  I care about living right, free, and faithful to God to the end.  It is those who endure to the end who will be saved.  And I reject this goose-step towards the New World Order.  I would rather die in Mass, receiving Holy Communion on my knees and on the tongue, than live my life in a mask and isolated.

Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

Well, I guess I will just keep writing.  It seems that those who are self-centered, abusive, violent, misguided, revisionist, evil, cancel culture enthusiasts have the public's ear these days and the elevated platform.  Someone like me -- just a regular person trying to live for God and live a decent life -- we are demonized.  So, I guess I will just keep speaking until the communists come for me.  Hopefully, I will keep speaking, even then!


First, I want to share this quote from Archbishop Fulton Sheen:
Today we have to conform to the world or we're branded.  Our Lord said, I have taken you out of the world.  We say, No, we have to win the world, and to win it you have to be one with it.  Our Lord says, I pray not for the world.  He was praying for the spirit of the world.  And this is the easiest kind of way to fall off the log -- worldliness.  It's so simple, and it can be justified for a thousand reasons; namely, the Vatican Council [V2] said we have to go into the world -- indeed, but not to be the world, which is quite a different matter.  So this is our attack today.
Brilliant.  It was first said in 1974, and is more relevant today than ever. 

And, pertaining to this post and my discussion of the appalling state of the Catholic Church here in Scotland, I find this quote particularly on point (also from Archbishop Fulton Sheen):
Who is going to save our Church?  Not our bishops, not our priests and religious.  It is up to you, the people.  You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church.  Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and your religious act like religious.
And NO, I do not think this justifies Bishop Barron's recent comment that it's up to the laity to fight for our churches, statues, sacred items, way of life.  In essence, his "not my job" comment.  This is something altogether different, and it requires that we stand up to the hierarchy and clergy and CALL THEM OUT when they are doing, saying, or promoting anything that is NOT the true Catholic teaching and goes against our Lord Jesus.  You know, like "pride Masses", or withholding the Blessed Sacrament, or keeping church doors closed out of convenience, and things like that.  But I digress.  Let's get to today's point: 

LEX ORANDI, LEX CREDENDI

I want to talk about a thing that I find so incredibly disappointing and disheartening:  the church's (especially the Catholic Church) complete roll-over-and-die mentality and utter subservience to the government during this whole insane Covid-19 thing.  What?  Where is this coming from?  NOT from God, that is for certain.  All around me I see the Christian church just lie down and die.  As Dr Taylor Marshall has said:  the church is giving more to Caesar than was even asked.  Yep.  Here is the bulk of a lengthy and absurd email I received yesterday (my comments are in brackets []):

On 21 July 2020 a consultation between parishioners on Zoom decided as follows:  [NOTE:  my husband and I were not part of this "consultation"]

[All in caps]  With recognition that Catholics remain with dispensation NOT TO ATTEND MASS [in other words, don't rush back to Mass] and are therefore not obliged to attend the partial opened church masses now being offered below.  No pressure is implied.  [Again, please don't worry about getting back to Church AND RECEIVING THE BODY OF CHRIST.]

[One "Mass centre" was closed completely, and the other two churches are referred to as thus:]  Our Parish Mass centres are now the two churches only.  [Parish "Mass Centres"???]

[And here is the real kicker]:  FOR THOSE WHO NEVERTHELESS FEEL THEY WISH TO ATTEND MASS, the Parish of (...) offers the following:

[Then we get a whole discourse on how the churches will only be partially open, where to attend, and that only 30 people are allowed at a time, EVEN THOUGH the government opened the churches on 15th of July, and allows 50 people at a time]. 

[And then we get a whole list of what we can and cannot do, according to the government.  Hoo boy.  Let's be sure we give our first allegiance to the Scottish Government.  After all, what did Jesus know about that?]
  • Compulsary wearing of masks [this is NOT compulsory according to government law]
  • Compliance with two metre social distancing
  • Compliance with sanitizing hands
  •  No singing
  • No physical sign of the peace [Good. This Novus Ordo practice is stupid and takes away from the purpose of the Mass.]
  • Communion of ONE kind only and received in the hand [OH REALLY?  According to the Vatican, NO ONE has the right to refuse the faithful the reception of Communion on the tongue, including the Bishop -- and by the way, I got a condescending email from this bishop a few weeks ago, with a long but incomplete discourse, of COURSE, quoting, or I should say, PARTIALLY quoting St Cyril of Jerusalem regarding Communion in the hand.  Like I'm an idiot and don't know the whole story.  I was summarily dismissed by this man, too, by his telling me he was not going to get into an email argument with me.  Coward.  And the bishops wonder why we don't trust them and have no confidence in them?]
  • All readings done by the celebrant to avoid unnecessary movement of people [Again, good.  The Mass is sacred and should be treated as such.  All this laity participation is not necessarily a good thing.]
  • Prior reserved seats to which worshipers will be guided by stewards [because we're all too stupid to read signs or to not sit where the pews are taped off]
  • Communion will be given upon departure [How's that for desecrating the act?  Jesus is an afterthought.  A drive-thru commodity.  No prayers required.  Again, as Dr Taylor Marshall says:  a "snackrament"]
  • Departure to follow the order of pew seat numbers, so as to ensure a constant forward movement of people without any occasion to turn back and encounter others [Perfect communism!  Orderly sheep (sorry Shermy) who follow the rules and don't question.  And DON'T interact with others.  Divide and conquer.]
  • Votive candles will be lit by the celebrant within the liturgy [huh?]
  • No altar servers
  • Altar area and sacristy to be approached only by the celebrant
[Then there is more blah, blah, blah...followed by THIS:]

Critical to the success of these re-openings is sufficient volunteers who enable the above procedures of health and safety to take place.  [Then in RED and ALL CAPS}:  If we come short in this regard, there will be no choice but to cancel arrangements. 

The parish only invites volunteers:  NO ONE IS PRESSURISED TO VOLUNTEER.

[End of email] 

Yes, and the priest is clearly hoping no one WILL volunteer, and then he won't have to deal with Mass!  There is actually a whole bunch more directives after this, but what's the point.  Clearly this is all about fear mongering, physical health, and government compliance.  NO WORD WHATSOEVER ABOUT THE HEALTH OF OUR SOULS.

No, my husband and I will not be volunteering.  We do not want to contribute in any way to this absolute mockery and parody of a Mass.

What are people thinking???  This is NOT acceptable on any level, and yet, this is what the Scottish Bishops are encouraging.  I am appalled and saddened.  

Also note that in the months of communications regarding this issue, there has been NO discourse on Jesus Christ, on how to handle Communion with reverence, etc.  Clearly, this particular parish does not REALLY believe this is the Body and Blood.  


The upshot for us:  I am now looking at how we can get to Edinburgh at least once a month for a TLM.  

ALSO, here is a link, which may be controversial, on the whole mask-wearing thing, and why I do NOT subscribe to it.

Pray for us!  And friends, do not fall away!

Too Disgusted to Write


I have been long absent.  A whole month.  Frankly, I have been too disgusted with the state of things to write.  It feels like I only have venom to spew.  For example, the things infuriating me:
  • The wanton destruction of Catholic churches, images, statues, and sacred things.  Very few people are speaking up about this.  The Pope?  Puh-leeze.  There is really no point anymore in pretending.  The ANTI-Pope is what we're actually dealing with.  The bishops and others in the hierarchy?  Nope.  Don't want to rock that good ol' boys' network.
  • Anarchy, on both sides of the ocean.  By a bunch of paid thugs and spoiled brats.  It is laughable that the "kids" getting all riled up and joining in the destruction are claiming "white privilege".  Most of them are also white.  From America.  And obviously have money to spend, and no jobs.  White privilege?  The fact is, most of the world does not live like America, and the US is blessed with a high standard of living.  For virtually ALL of its citizens.  Spend a couple of months in Europe.  Or Africa.  Or Asia.  Or anywhere outside of America.  Then compare notes.  
  • The shameless fear-mongering over this whole stupid Covid-19 thing.  People, people.  Wake up!  First of all, what kind of life are the kids having when all around them people are wearing masks and reacting out of fear?  
    • MASKS:  Again.  Puh-leeze.  What on earth do people think they are accomplishing with that?  It's especially irritating (and pathetic) to see so-called grown-ups wearing masks outside, in their own cars by themselves, or in their homes.  Seriously?  Why all this fear?  And yes, masks DO inhibit your oxygen intake to one degree or another.  For crying out loud, people, use the brains God gave you!  Or have they already been oxygen-deprived?  In Scotland, because persecution of the Church is a very real and government-sanctioned thing, we are "required" by law to wear masks in church -- but NOT in restaurants or pubs.  Huh?
    • PANDEMIC:  Okay, in the strictest sense of the word, this is a pandemic.  Comparatively, across history, this is pretty small potatoes.  Let's get some perspective here.  Everyone in 2020 seems to think that this is the worst thing ever, and no one else has ever had it so bad or so hard.  Really?  Tell that to those who suffered through countless wars and plagues.  Come on.
    • EXCUSES:  This Covid-19 thing has given all the wrong people all kinds of excuses -- to persecute the church, to control the citizenry, to train us to follow rules so that when the communist state is finally established all over the world we'll all be trained, to blame the Christians (and especially the Catholics) for everything, to remove choices, to legislate abortion up to birth, and on and on.  
  • The One World Government / One World Religion that is emerging before our eyes, and the fact that NO ONE is doing anything about that, either.  This is not an overnight phenomenon.  This has been carefully planned and orchestrated for decades.  Oh, and by the way, it is Communist.
  • I am sick fed up of all things Vatican II, and the absolute mockery it is making of the Catholic Church.  The hierarchy and the Vatican are rotten at the core and the stench is spreading.
  • The excuse (Covid-19 again) to desecrate the Blessed Sacrament and try to enforce people to receive it in the hand.  By the way, there is documentation in the Vatican that supports the fact that every Catholic has the right to receive on the tongue, and NO ONE can deny him or her.  
  • Finally, the unbelievable focus on all things physical -- the fear of dying, the freaking out over this virus -- when the ONLY thing we should be focused on is the state of our souls, and the life everlasting.  Why do we have zillions of rules regarding how we are to proceed with our physical bodies, but we don't even bother with our souls?  
Everything is upside down.  The world is intent on telling us that Black is White and White is Black (don't even talk to me about politically correct vocabulary -- I'm not interested).  

THIS is complete sacrilege and blasphemy:



The only thing keeping me going is my Faith.  Regardless of how disgusted I am with the infrastructure of the Catholic Church and all the faithless, gutless, liberal clergy, I am a faithful Catholic, and I will remain such.  Our Lady tells us that there will be a remnant, and that her Immaculate Heart will win this war against evil.  We must take protection under her mantle.  I also keep reminding myself that the many evil men in the Church, from the top down (let us not forget who placed Pachamama idols on the altar) are NOT the Church.  The Church belongs to Jesus Christ, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it, no matter how hard they are trying right now.  Even when it gets to the point where it LOOKS like all is lost, it isn't.  God will not be silent forever.  He promises us victory.  He already HAS the victory.  Christ died once for all.  If some (many?  most?) reject Him, that does not change the Truth.


The Great Apostasy is here, my friends.  Persecution is real for those of us who thought we'd never see it in our lifetimes.  Are you prepared?  There will be martyrs.  But we know in whom we trust.  Don't fall away!  Endure to the end!

[NOTE:  I DO still aspire to write about something cheerful.  Sigh...]

Pride Goes Before a Fall

Would someone like to explain to me what is happening in this world?  I am still overwhelmed with the insanity that I see all around me.  I cannot speak about most of the world, but I can definitely speak about the US and the UK, and Western Europe.  

Everywhere I look, I see signs of madness:  People having literally lost their minds (I am constantly reminded of the Gadarene demoniac here), and running to and fro, trying to tell the rest of us that evil is good and good is evil.  Christians have been warned about this, many times over.  We KNOW this is going to happen, and in fact, has happened repeatedly in history.  But it is always shocking, I think.


Today, I was doing my online grocery order at Asda (a subsidiary of WalMart, for those who don't know), and I suddenly realised that the ASDA logo at the top of the page was rainbow coloured.  Sigh.  I hovered over it, already knowing what it was:  "PRIDE" it said.  Shortly thereafter, I was on the Argos website looking for a lamp.  And I realise, the ARGOS logo at the top of the page is rainbow coloured.  


So, I look it up in the news, to try to get a handle on what is going on.  Mercifully, I had somehow not realised that June is "pride"month (fill in the blank for whatever LBGT initial you happen to be, I guess).  I found a HUGE list of companies in the UK who are not only supporting LBGT whatever, whatever, stupid, stupid, stupid -- but they are also donating money to these people.  For crying out loud!  What on earth is there to be proud of?  And let us not forget:  Pride does indeed go before a fall.  ALL of humanity's sins can be traced back to pride, starting with the fall of Lucifer and the episode in the Garden.  

The silent majority -- or maybe we really are just the silent and too trusting minority now -- has been silent for too long.  These "pride" people can scream and yell in your face (whether we're talking BLM or gay pride, it all comes down to the same thing -- evil), and we are supposed to just acquiesce and tolerate things?  No.  NO NO NO.  I will not engage, nor will I scream and yell, and I will not attack any single person.  BUT... I spend money, too, and I WILL boycott the "pride" businesses.  When have they ever done anything for me, other than take my money?  I have had enough.

Here is the list:
  • Zenni
  • Fabletics
  • Banana Republic
  • Adidas
  • Doc Martens
  • Apple
  • Asda
  • Argos
  • Converse
  • ASOS
  • NIke
  • Bonobos
  • Sephora
  • Diesel
  • Visa
  • Charles Schwab
  • Uber
  • Ikea
  • Microsoft
  • Paypal
  • Coca Cola
  • Gap
  • HP
  • Harry's
  • Absolut
  • Disney
  • Starbucks
  • Lush
  • Listerine
  • Reebok
  • Calvin Klein
  • Rosetta Stone
  • Levis
  • H&M
  • Target
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Smirnoff
  • Megabus
  • Sperry
  • Fossil
  • Macy's
  • T-Mobile
  • TopShop
This is by no means an exhaustive list.  What in the world are we coming to?  And don't tell me that this is an indication of everyone becoming friendlier and more inclusive.  I don't buy that for a minute.  The people supporting this perversion are definitely NOT inclusive of me or people like me.  In fact, they are often quite aggressive and abusive, and love to tell us how stupid we are.  So I repeat, what is there to be proud of?  That you've fallen so far off the track that you can't even tell right from wrong? 

I am over it.  And I am not silent.  Even if I stand alone, I will not be silent when I see things which are abberations and are abhorent, and are steam-rollering right over the top of us.  

Even my little list is pretty extensive.  It makes you think, doesn't it?   If one is not vigilant, all things evil seep in through tiniest little cracks in covert ways until, before you know it, all of society has been changed and evil is dominant.  Look around you.  It should be obvious.

Unleashed


I want to write about everyday, mundane things:  we are renovating our kitchen; we got our Shermy clipped for the summer (always an ordeal); we just had our 13th wedding anniversary.  I want to write about these things, but I can't.

How can I talk about the simple, good things when all around me I am seeing evil unleashed like never before in my lifetime.  I feel like I would be burying my head in the sand if I focused on these kinds of things.  At the same time, I know that as a Christian, I probably should focus on these things.  Where does one draw the line between being prepared, wise, and informed, and being at peace?  I know one thing for sure:  peace ONLY comes from God and NOWHERE else.


I just want to say these things, and maybe I will be able to move on in my next post:
  • The same namby-pamby young people who have been sitting in the lotus position, claiming they want peace, and spouting their "can't we all just get along" mantra are now the ones most confrontational and violent today.  So how did all that mindfulness-you're-okay-I'm-okay crap work out for them?
  • If you do not worship the Truth, you worship evil.  Yes, it actually is that black and white.  
  • What is going on in the world right now is a spiritual battle, and Christians, we are falling down on the job.
  • "Political correctness" is garbage.  Correct for whom?
  • BLM is not about ANYTHING even remotely life-affirming or life-giving.  It is a terrorist organisation whose goal is to destroy the fabric of a moral society.
  • Apparently not ALL black lives matter, because the BLM movement encourages abortions, especially for black women.
  • It is not a coincidence that this move towards anarchy is coming on the heels of Covid-19.
  • The governments of the US and the UK are using Covid-19 as an excuse to persecute the Church.  You can go to a shopping mall, ride a train, get on a plane, sit on a bus, and go to the movies -- but you can't go to Church?
  • Low-level and persistent persecution of Christians has been going on in the UK ever since I got here, and that was back in 2007.  Christians:  WAKE UP!  The government is forming legislation that will categorize the teachings of the Church as "hate crimes".  Scotland is in the forefront with this.
  • Many of the priests and hierarchy are complicit with persecution, at the very least by their silence, but also by aligning themselves with watered-down versions of the Faith, by aligning themselves with divisive and terrorist groups, and by doing such weak-minded, limp-wristed things as renouncing their heritage and pasts and, in a blaze of virtue-signalling, stating things like "I pray that those of us who are white Christians repent of our own prejudices, and do the work of becoming better allies of our brothers and sisters of colour." (Justin Welby on Twitter).  GIVE. ME. A. BREAK.  Are you telling me that black people have no prejudices?  Come on, people.  Use your brains.  And, if you believe even the tiniest bit in revelations like Fatima, you know it will NOT be the clergy or hierarchy who save the Faith.  It will be the laity.  Many of the clergy and hierarchy are already on the road to perdition.  And no, I do not agree with the Pope's "no borders" mentality, either.  
  • Chaz?  Or Chop.  Or whatever the heck stupid name you have given yourselves:  if you are seceding from the Union, then I guess you don't need any state support, money, or economy of any kind.  You no longer deserve the privileges of an American life.  And since you happen to be on American soil (essentially, you have invaded it), then America has the right to bomb the hell out of you, and oust your regime.  Brace yourselves.
  • We are in dire, dire times, my friends.  Empires are on the verge of toppling.  Christians are too complacent.  People in general are too eager to reclaim their previous, ordered (I use that term loosely) lives.  And this is not going to happen.  

So what do we do?  It seems, from my own point of view, that what started in America has spread like wildfire around the western world, and that a veritable torrent of evil has been unleashed.  It is as if the demons and demoniacs have been given the green light.  The world has lost its collective mind.


Christians, what can we do?  Well, ultimately, we can pray and fast, and place our trust in Christ.  The Faith is very clear -- there will be an end time, and it will not be pretty.  Is it now?  Who knows?  Jesus admonishes us not to try to determine when.  He also admonishes us to have oil for our lamps, and to be watchful.  Do not engage with evil, and do not use its weapons.  Pray, people.  Pray like crazy.  And trust in God.


Here's hoping I have a more "normal" post next time!

In Case You Missed It...

I had to share this in case you haven't seen or heard it yet.  A brave young priest, saying what needs to be said.  This complete insanity and the anything-but-peaceful BLM movement have to be stopped. Please consider:


If you can't see the embedded video (which I think is happening with mobile devices), CLICK HERE.

I do think he is courageous.  I cannot imagine the backlash he will receive.  May God bless and protect him.

The world has gone mad, my friends.  Do not join this madness.

Pax Christi.

A Right Christian Response

THIS right here is so misguided, it is appalling.
THIS is desecration of the Holy Cross of Christ

There is nothing about the riots and protests in the western world right now that signifies a Christian of any stripe to "stand in solidarity" with it.  Consider this, instead:

From Psalm 30 (31)

How many are the pleasures, Lord,
that you have stored up for those who fear you.
You have made these things ready for those who trust in you,
to give them in the sight of all men.
Far away from the plottings of men
you hide them in your secret place.
You keep them safe in your dwelling-place
far from lying tongues. 

Blessed be the Lord,
for he has shown me his wonderful kindness
within the fortified city.
In my terror, I said
"I am cut off from your sight";
but you heard the voice of my prayer
when I called to you.

Love the Lord, all his chosen ones.
The Lord keeps his faithful ones safe,
heaps rich revenge on the arrogant.
Be brave, let your hearts be strong,
all who trust in the Lord.
Emphasis mine, obviously. 

Those of us who have our hope in the Lord recognize what is going on in the world right now.  Chaos and confusion, destruction and hatred, rampaging insanity -- these things all come from the devil.  They will in no way ever avail anything good.  Riot, loot, and steal.  What has that to do with God?  Christians should NOT involve themselves in any of these behaviours, nor should they be standing about with signs, or yelling and screaming, or "re-enacting" anything.  

NO. NO. NO.  We do NOT align ourselves
with any form of evil.  These people
should be ashamed.

Those Christians who ARE doing these things:  do they not see that they are wallowing in the pigsty?  The "yard-sign" mentality and virtual signalling so rampant in our culture today is stupid and self-serving.  Instead of all this temper-tantrum behaviour, and holier-than-thou nonsense with signs and banners, try living your life for others rather than your own little selves.  As well, we must not worship anyone or ANYTHING but God.  We must NEVER engage with evil on its own level.  Trying to overcome any form of evil with another form of evil is lunacy.  We should expect this from people who do not know God, but from those who identify as Christians?  Never!  I am appalled when I see what is happening around the western world and the number of people who claim to be Christians jumping into the fray and behaving badly.  How DARE our priests, ministers, and religious "take a knee" for anyone but God?

What is happening now is what happens when people have no God.  When one turns away from God, he will worship anything.  And today, that "anything" happens to be a man who was a thug and a criminal.  Drape it in whatever you will, but the Truth will eventually win out.  Eventually, everything done in the dark will come to light.

Another blatantly apparent thing is the fact of the immense watering-down of the True Faith.  Look around.  Are Christians living any differently than those who are in and of the world?  Some, maybe; but not a lot.

There is a great darkness sweeping over the western world right now, and Christians should stay far from it -- keeping sane and hopeful and faithful.  Do not sully yourselves with this hideous stain of sin and call it righteousness.  There is nothing righteous or good in any of these destructive, violent, misguided, evil actions.  


Return to the Light, my friends.  Men have gone mad, and we who don't "take a knee", loot, steal, vandalize, destroy, scream our fool heads off, are the ones who are being attacked.  Prepare yourselves.  The Church is next...
