The Splendor of Truth
Updated: 2 hours 15 min ago

Stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen… IT’S GO TIME

Sat, 01/18/2020 - 21:40

Full cross-post below; no further commentary needed. Please, pray that the truth be exposed and acknowledged. Offer Rosaries with fervor. Lay down your Mass intentions like you would lay down a steady reign of suppressing fire. You have to mean it. Folks, we are so, so close.


It’s all happening. Rotate Caeli is coming onside. Benedict is Pope. HERE

Rotate Caeli, the very influential international Traditional Catholic blog, just retweeted this – a response to Professor Roberto de Mattei’s piece of a few days ago.

Here is the money quote from de Mattei’s piece:

The priesthood can’t even be lost by death, because it subsists “in aternum” . The papacy, on the other hand, can be lost, not only by death, but also in the case of voluntary renunciation or of manifest, notorious heresy. If he renounces being pontiff, the Pope ceases to be such: he has no right to wear white nor impart the Apostolic Blessing. He, from a canonical point of view, is no longer even a cardinal, but goes back to being a simple bishop.  Unless his renunciation is invalid: but this, in the case of Benedict XVI, should be proven. Effectively, the title of Pope today is being given to both Francis and Benedict, but one is certainly abusive, as only one [man] can be Pope in the Church.   

Folks, no progress will be made so long as the TRUTH of the canonical invalidity of Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation is not actively, positively acknowledged.
Anything less will simply mean more wheel-spinning.
BUT, if the truth is acknowledged, folks, I’m telling you, the sun will rise on a new world the next day.
Again, here is the form that a Cardinalatial announcement could take:
Significant canonical irregularities have been identified with regards to Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation as proffered in February of 2013. Pending further investigation, a state of emergency suspense is hereby declared.”
Thirty words.
Everything changes. For the better.
Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.

Fury from the combox: “The central hidden lies of Fake News”

Fri, 01/17/2020 - 00:51

Frequent contributor “Aqua” once again manages to explain complex and seemingly dissimilar phenomena concisely and yet holistically.

I hope she doesn’t start charging me for content. (emphasis mine)


The leftist movement is global and seeks to control both the City of Man (global government – Soros, Clinton, EU, Obama etc) and the City of God (the Catholic Church – the Pope as Dictator to slaves).

I first noticed their (leftists) method to persuade me and other conservatives and orthodox like me (they already have the leftist like-minded) in the prelude to President Trump’s election. Though personal conversations with liberal (leftist) friends who shared my (then) dislike of Donald John Trump with typical variation on politics, I suddenly had a moment of clarity; literally as if a light bulb was turned on in mid-conversational stream: everything I thought I knew about the man (Trump) and the GOP (vis conservative) politics in general was driven by the central hidden lies of “Fake News”, or, the Ministry of Propaganda, Orwell’s Ministry of Truth, “Minitrue” in Newspeak.

I was a dupe (an increasingly doubting and questioning dupe) for decades. *Everything* they say is a lie. All of it, lies. I was literally shaking my head for days, processing this paradigm shift.

Since that moment, a few weeks prior to the election, I voted for Trump and have become one of his staunchest defenders. That moment of illumination has been confirmed as accurate over and over again.

And yes, I see the same pattern repeated in leftist, satanic driven efforts to subsume the Holy Catholic Church into their demonic leftist humanist ideology. They have “stolen a march” on Catholics, unaware of the threat behind their lines of defense.

Anyone who fails to acknowledge this now is guilty of willful deception. They are like the Never-Trumps who will hold their position whatever the cost because they have pridefully invested too much in a disastrously incorrect opinion at the moment of greatest need. It becomes harder and harder to admit error (“defeat” only from the perspective of pride) with their every public utterance and choice against the good.

Conservative commentators literally side with leftists on politics just to take down the object of their error and thus their hate.

I see (previously) orthodox Catholics committing similar error: siding with, defending, explaining away what until a few years ago was unthinkable apostasy.

Time is not their friend, as it becomes more and more gross, obvious, sulphuric.

I sincerely hope all Catholics of good-will find the humility necessary to forget all else and focus on the Truth, whatever the cost. The paradigm shift has (perhaps) begun. Everyone must choose a side in this divinely inspired time of moral choice and clarity.

Is anyone making popcorn yet?

Honestly, this is so good, you need to see it all. So I will just cut and paste the whole thing here.

Original reportage and additional links HERE.

This is an algorithmic translation directly from Antonio Socci’s public Facebook page HERE:


Reliable internal sources at the Vatican rebuild the story. The book “From the Bottom of our Hearts” is clearly of Benedict XVI and the card. Sarah (as they unequivocally demonstrate the letters between the two made notes by Sarah). Everything was decided and agreed by common agreement from the beginning.
The before – when the part in defense of the ecclesiastical celibacy was anticipated – in the Vatican the loose erupted because bergoglio was furious.
In fact that authoritative statement of Benedict xvi prevents him from sitting the ecclesiastical celibacy as he would have planned to do in the next exhortation exhortation. So he himself called mons. Gaenswein, who is secretary of Benedict XVI, but also prefect of the pontifical house of Bergoglio and – furious – ordered him to remove the name of Benedict XVI from the cover of that book (cannot expect to change the texts of the book). Bergoglio demanded a full and total rejection. This is why the first filtered news talked about sources “close to Benedict XVI” according to which benedetto had not written a four-hands book with Sarah, nor approved the cover (i.e. his signature to volume). This though was not true and Benedict XVI could not accept to say false accusing the card implicitly. Sarah to have involved him without his consent. Neither Pope Benedict had any intention of eat what he wrote in defense of celibacy in that volume.
In fact the card. Sarah immediately made notes the letters between them, which showed that the book was wanted by both, and certainly he made notes with the consent of Benedict XVI. To restore the truth.
On the other hand blessed was also found in the need to shelter his secretary from the South American ” feuds since he had received a peremptory order of Bergoglio.
This is how this compromise solution was adopted: in the editions of the book following the first the author of the book will be the card. Sarah “with the contribution of Benedict xvi”. the text of the book in any case remains equal.
With this messy compromise the court Bergogliana can tell the media that “Benedict XVI has withdrawn the signature from the book” (although it is not true) and however in fact the book remains such and which, with the signing of Sarah and the name of Benedict XVI Author of the agreed parts.
A bad story of clerical arrogance that eventually aims to gag Benedict XVI.
However, there is the question of background: if Bergoglio, in his exhortation, gives the celibacy (with the order of the “Viri Probati”) in fact he puts himself in direct contrast with the doctrine of the church reaffirmed these days by Pope Benedict XVI . So it takes responsibility for a serious and pregnant tear.

Did you do the Epiphany house blessing? There is still time!

Fri, 01/10/2020 - 00:32

After all, it’s only Thursday within the suppressed Octave. The party shall continue unabated.

The household prayer is traditionally done with a priest and the whole family taking part, but you can do it on your own, in a pinch. Just remember, it’s not you doing the blessing (if you;re a layman), it’s you calling down the blessing from God. God does the blessing.

What you will need is blessed Epiphany water, blessed chalk, and incense. If you don’t have a thurible, you can get a “starter” one on Amazon for under $15. Nice ones are around $100.

Mine is a little banged up, but I can still swing it.

For incense, I highly recommend Holy Rood Guild, Cantica flavored (although their Laudate is also quite good). It’s not cheap, but it will last you a long time. Don’t make the mistake of using too much; it only takes a little to make a lot of smoke.

Charcoal on amazon HERE.

Sorry for literally cutting, pasting, and taping the blessing, but here it is:

Not sure why that G is there, it should be a C, like this:


For some detailed info about all this, along with additional links to the actual words of the blessing of Epiphany water, which are quite beautiful, go HERE.

Blessed continued Epiphany!

Epiphany used to be a really big deal… let’s make it so again

Tue, 01/07/2020 - 00:35

The party isn’t over. Let’s pretend it’s pre-1955, as I crack open my 1948 hand missal.

Double of the first class with a Privileged Octave, y’all. Thrice-fold manifestation.

And as we see so often, the imagery not only recalls historical events in linear time, but also calls for us to live out these realities in real time, for our own spiritual benefit.

Happy Feast!

“Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Thy Holy Name”

Sun, 01/05/2020 - 19:31

Happy feast!

Fear and love. They work together to foster zeal through obedience. When praying the Mysteries of the Rosary, particularly the Fourth Joyful (The Presentation; fruit: Obedience, love of the law), and the Third Glorious (Pentecost; fruit: Love of God, zeal), always remember that Jesus is a PERSON. In order to love a person, you need to know the person. Jesus is Truth, the law is Truth, and love of the law is how you get to know Him. He loves you infinitely and He desires your love for Him to increase.

With love of the law comes a corresponding fear of justice which in turn builds up our love of God. The whole dynamic has a certain reciprocity to it. If there is a part of the law that you just don’t like or think it’s okay to ignore, that’s the thing keeping you from knowing Him better. The only way to break through is total submission, and it is completely irrational to hold anything back.

The Holy Name of Jesus is powerful. Yes, just His name alone is a powerful prayer. If you don’t have a palm-sized Crucifix, you need one. Hold it in your hand with a particular intention in mind, and just pray His name. If you need something a little longer, use “Jesus, I trust in you.” Be in the state of grace and in a spirit of humble praise. This isn’t superstition or false piety, it’s devotion. Be serious about it, and you will be glad you did. You won’t always get what you ask for, but you will get what’s best for you.

Sorry for the dearth of posts, but ’tis the season for family and friends. Besides, I just haven’t been inspired to write about Slapamama or the other goings on. I promise to get back in the swing shortly.

Meanwhile, the Litany of the Most Holy Name of Jesus is one of my favorites. Enjoy.

Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Thy Holy Name, for Thou never failest to help and govern those whom Thou dost bring up in Thy steadfast fear and love; who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

Proving once again that this is NOT the Kobayashi Maru test

Wed, 01/01/2020 - 00:39

Antipope doing antipope stuff.

Demonstrating who he really is.


Is this Christ’s Vicar on Earth?

This evening after visiting the Nativity scene in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis loses his cool after being grabbed by a pilgrim who wouldn't let go of his hand. The Pope repeated slapped her hand and told her to let go of him.

By Thy Bounteous Grace

Wed, 12/25/2019 - 14:37

Adeste Fideles, Venite Adoremus!

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning,
Jesu, to Thee be glory given.
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;

See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze.
We too will thither bend our hearts’ oblations;

There shall we see Him, His eternal Father’s
everlasting brightness now veiled under flesh.
God shall we find there, a Babe in infant clothing;

Child, for us sinners, poor and in the manger,
we would embrace Thee, with love and awe.
Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?


Adeste Fideles, verses 5-7: Abbé Étienne Jean François Borderies (1764-1832)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

May our offering on this day’s feast be acceptable to Thee, O Lord, we beseech Thee: That by Thy bounteous grace, through this sacred interchange, we may be found like unto Him, in whom our nature is united to Thee.

Secret, First Mass, The Nativity of our Lord
